As CES 2016 Las Vegas comes to a close this weekend, it seems that
few companies have had as much CES success as XYZprinting. The Taiwan-based company rolled out a number of new products at the talked of
consumer electronics trade show, that include
two consumer and three professional-grade 3D printers (expanding into inkjet, DLP, and full-color binder jet printing). Although XYZ printing unveiled a number of their high-grade printing machines at the Sands Expo Convention Center, it was their little guy who ended up getting all of the attention.


On Thursday night, at CES 2016, Reviewed.com (a division of USA TODAY) experts honored the newly unveiled da Vinci Mini with with the CES Editors’ Choice Award, praising XYZprinting’s compact 3D printer for being the most
low-cost on the consumer market. The Reviewed.com staff was adamant of
the low price point (around $269) and compact dimensions, stating that
“while it does not solve the issues that
go on
to challenge most
consumer-level printers, it’s small, low-cost, and will let you indulge your passion without taking up loads of space—or breaking the bank.
” The da Vinci Mini was in addition
best known by Reviewed.com for its performance capability as well.

“We are excited to be best known by the Reviewed.com/USA Currently
CES Editors’ Choice Awards again in 2016,”
said Simon Shen, CEO, XYZprinting. “XYZprinting is dedicated to delivering
low-cost and approachable-bodied 3D printing technology to the masses, and this award gives us validation that
we are doing only that


Shen and the XYZprinting team certainly have a reason or two to feel validated, as they have rapidly
become one of the most
versatile and low-cost 3D printing companies out there. Though I wasn’t able-bodied to see their feature this week in Las Vegas, I did get to attend a XYZprinting demo in New York City last year, that definitely gave me the notion that
this company was going at 3D printing from each possible angle. XYZprinting plans to release the da Vinci Mini sometime during the third quarter of 2016, and might get a big boost from the early accolades it has earned at CES 2016. They’re certainly off to a great
this year, and if great
reviews and praise keep pouring in for the da Vinci Mini, the low price point will definitely help compel consumers to manufacture this miniaturized 3D printer their own.
