Despite the awe-inspiring price point of XYZprinting’s 3D printing equipment, many Makers are additional concerned with the Taiwanese brand’s filament situation. Following the 2D printing device industry’s razor-and-blade version, XYZprinting offers proprietary filament cartridges for its line of FFF 3D printing equipment only swaying of the path to allow their da Vinci Pro process to accept third party filaments.

One of the largest appeals of third party offerings is the vast donate of exotic and industrial filaments that greatly open up the range of applications for computer desktop 3D printing. To store their customers pleased, and so, XYZ can have to release its own competitive versions of these materials (growing by the day) or open up their printing equipment to an actually greater extent. Now, their initially entrance into the exotic filament market was only revealed with the release of the company’s own brand of flexible filament cartridges.

XYZprinting’s Flexible Filaments are non-toxic and waterproof elastomers intended to outcome in malleable prints. Working exclusively with the brand’s da Vinci 1.0 Blue and da Vinci AiO processs, the filament is stored in the easy-to-install cartridges with a built-in chip, that confirms the use of XYZ filaments inside these machines and tracks material usage levels. Today only on the market in white, 600 grams of the material can be purchased for $49.

One benefit of the proprietary process for what can be an otherwise finicky material is that, pretty than allow the user to figure out the nuance of their printing device’s settings and filament feeding mechanism, the printing device and its software do all of the work. The direct feeding tube confirms that the material is led properly into the printhead, while the software automatically recognizes the material and adonly the settings appropriately. So again, we may be in the midst of a Maker revolution, so the additional we learn of such challenges, the additional well-rounded we may become as fabbing enthusiasts.
