XYZ has not released a successor to its da Vinci Jr. but rather a model to offer those that do not want something so big. The new XYZ da Vinci miniMaker 3D printer is 30 per cent smaller, and so targets STEM education – or simply schools to you and I.
This new model is not all about making its price even cheaper, which is $249.95, but rather shrinking its size to make it more useful in schools. This is yet another blow for the likes of MakerBot, as they are priced right out of the market – and targeting STEM education is a great marketing strategy.
The thing is, going for schools is a great market to tap in to, and so XYZ knew changes needed to be made, as the da Vinci Jr. was not right for schools.
It’s not all about shrinking the size though, as the XYZ da Vinci miniMaker 3D printer also has new software that targets grades K-12 with 3D modelling, as well as an online gallery and also a curriculum has been bundled into the package as well.
As for it’s availability, you will be able to purchase this new printer from October 21. For more details visit XYZ.
