The technology horizon is changing quickly, and it’s hard for companies to store pace with the advancing market; the just way to lead is to create new and low-priced products without compromising high end. Innovation can drive 3D Printing for the upcoming 20 years.


Among the companies that managed to innovate and lead, it’s worth mentioning Kinpo, a Taipei based Taiwanese company founded in 1973. The company started with a LCD calculator. It moved in 3D Printing a few years ago with the “da Vinci 3D Printers”, by XYZprinting. The passion for technology is paying off as the company is now the world’s biggest creater of computer desktop 3D Printers.

New Kinpo Group, a conglomerate producing its foray into 3D Printing

The New Kinpo Group(NKG), consists of several subsidiaries like Kinpo Electronics, Cal-Comp Electronics, and XYZprinting with its products ranging of storage space devices to 2D printing devices, wireless devices, 3D printing, power management, health care products, car and many emerging technologies. At the end of 2015, NKG reached $7.9 billion in sales with almany 45,000 employees. XYZprinting, is the world’s biggest provider of 3D printing devices, and accounts for 22 percent of all the world’s shipments, with offices in China, Japan, Korea, Europe and the United States. Kenpo projected revenues for the 3D Printing segment is to the tune of $50M for 2016.

Recently the Low-Cost da Vinci Mini 3D Printer was honored with three awards of Reviewed.com, Tom’s Guide, and TWICE at the Consumer Electronics Show held at San Diego January 13, this year. There’s pretty a lot to be pleased of for the management of Kinpo. “The recognition of the da Vinci Mini at CES validates our dedication to driving consumer accessibility in the 3D printing industry,” said Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting and New Kinpo Group. “We appear forward to continuing to break down the technology barriers in the 3D printing market, by introducing easy-to-use, cost-effective devices, like the da Vinci Mini, that donate new experiences to consumers.”

“We can go on to commence the world to new categories of technology and new, low-priced, high-high end devices that improve lives and assist manufacture industry smarter and additional efficient,” says New Kinpo Group CEO Simon Shen. “Our goal is to enable the masses to enjoy the benefits of high end electronics and product creations and to manufacture the many impactful, low-priced emerging technologies on the market to consumers to enhance their lives in each way.” by new Shen pretty means 3D printing devices.


XYZprinting already offers three categories of 3D printing devices namely: Beginners, Plus and Professional.

The beginner category comes with da Vinci Jr. 1.0, da Vinci Jr. 1.0w, da Vinci 1.0 and a 3D scanner that frequently comes in handy. The printing devices cost $349.95, $399.95, $499.95 and price is $199.95 for the scanner. These printing devices have an average robust create dimensions of 5.9 x 5.9 x 5.9 inches and a resolution of 100 to 400 microns. The initially two use PLA filaments whereas the da Vinci 1.0 offers ABS, PLA and Flexible filaments.

These 3D printing devices use XYZmanufacturer that is a 3D modeling software. Simple shapes can be created, or additional hard geometries may be scanned with any 3D scanner.

We can review soon the Da Vinci 3D Printers and can report on our findings.
