Recently I bought a Da Vinci 1.0 3D printer on special for $680 AUD. I personally thought this was a steal compared to the other brands of 3D printers that are selling for well over $1k. I had no interest in 3D printing until I saw the Da Vinci and its very low price. Yes I am fully aware that the Da Vinci printers use propriety filament, the slicer software is apparently rubbish and they are not open-source blah, blah, blah. They still provide a very low starting price for someone to get started with 3D printing.
The first thing that I noticed after diving head first into 3D printing is there is very little collated information on:
- how to use a Da Vinci 1.0 3D printer
- what its capabilities are
- do all these magical fixes actually improve performance
- actual performance results
Over the coming months, I plan to progressively update this page as I learn more about the printer and 3D printing as a whole. Hopefully some of this information will help you to improve your 3D printing results or allow you to make an informed decision.
