XYZ Printing & da Vinci 1.0 Pro Review

The XYZ printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro has several features that make it more akin to higher-priced, intermediate-level 3D printers.This model was cut from the review after breaking and needing to be exchanged for a new model three times.

Size and Features:

The da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3D printer from XYZ printing will take up a lot of room on your desk. It’s roughly the same size as a decent-sized cathode-ray television set (if you remember those) and weighs 57.4 pounds. The machine accepts ABS and PLA filament from a variety of vendors, allowing customers to print a wider range of materials. Print beds that allow users to quickly separate printed things have been difficult for XYZ printing to produce because they stick together too tightly. A replaceable polyetherimide (PEI) bed can be used in place of the Pro’s print bed. PEI is a common material used in 3D printers. The ability to swap out the 3D printer head for a laser engraver is a particularly appealing feature of the Pro.


The da Vinci Pro 3-in-1 isn’t going to fit into a tight corner, measuring 22 x 20.5 x 18 inches. A print of up to 5.9 inches high, broad, and deep can be placed on the heated print bed. The majority of the prints adhered effectively to the heat, tape, and glue combo.


The da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1 printer isn’t very quick, but it’s simple to set up and operate. It detects the print bed using a sensor on the print head and then asks you to adjust the bed leveling settings. This can be a little perplexing because each “step” represents a quarter-turn of the dial.

Ease of Use:

This printer received a 7 out of 10 for Ease of Use, which is above average. In this metric, the printer’s saving grace was how simple it was to replace filaments and level the bed. This model can only be used with XYZ ware Pro, which is proprietary software. We didn’t like it because it was clumsy and unintuitive.

Software and Connectivity:

XYZ ware For Pro appears to be more versatile than XYZ print. A USB or Wi-Fi connection to a computer is required for connectivity. Some objects turned produced fine, but others were problematic for the da Vinci 1.0 Pro. Although the print was not quite complete in our tests, the shapes that did print out were neatly shaped.

Print Speed:

The Pro 3-in-1 printer isn’t especially quick; print times ranged from 6 hours 45 minutes to 11 hours 23 minutes. That’s much slower than the Lulz Bot Mini, which took roughly 2 hours to print a 4.5-inch-high print. A slightly bigger 0.38-mm layer height produced a similar print.

Print tests:

The da Vinci Pro failed to finish a print of the Eiffel Tower, resulting in a bird’s nest of filament. The printer took over three hours to print an octopus, and the result was mediocre. Then I set about making the body of a flying drone, which was made up of 11 components. I was able to print similar parts of the drone in one print, reducing the overall print time.

Print Quality:

The quality of most of the prints produced by the Pro 3-in-1 wowed me. The majority of these were immaculate, with smooth surfaces and little printing flaws. However, I discovered that printouts with the minimum layer height, 0.1 mm, did not function effectively.


  • Large construction area
  • Wi-Fi and USB ports are available.
  • The laser etcher performs admirably.


  • Printing takes a long time.
  • Print quality is inconsistent.


 The XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro boasts a huge build area and a good range of capabilities, but variable print quality and a tedious build-plate leveling method can detract from the experience.
