Kogan now offering the cheapest 3D printer

The online retailer is now accepting pre-orders for the da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer

Online retailer, Kogan, has announced that it will be selling XYZ’s da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer at a price of $699, significantly cheaper than the $1499 price tag of the only notable 3D printer available in general retail, Officeworks’ Cube 3D Printer.

It’s a product that should appeal to those of you who have had an inkling to get into 3D printing now, but have so far been put off by the cost. The units Kogan is selling won’t actually leave the warehouse until 5 June.

The 3D printer has the ability to create objects up to a size of 20x20x20cm with ABS filament material, and it melts this filament out through a single nozzle. What all this means is that you can print out plastic figurines or any other types of objects that are up to 20cm cubed using one single colour. The maximum print speed is about 150mm per second (with slower settings available) and the finest print layering is 0.1mm (100 micron).

There are 12 different filament colours available for this printer, which look like spools of thread in a cartridge, and these are worth $39 each on the Kogan site (just like the printer itself, they are currently on pre-sale).

It’s a printer that is meant to be easy to use and also safe to operate. The filament cartridge slots in from the top, and the printer itself is mostly enclosed with a clear panel at the front so you can see your print in action. Designs can be downloaded from the XYZ Cloud, with support for XYZ and .stl files. It works with Windows and Mac via USB 2.0.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
