3D Printer Market launch by HP

Dion Weisler, who is poised to become the CEO of HP Inc. reported by USA CRN, the company's $57 billion printing and PC business business, is bringing together fashion designer glitterati for HP's eagerly anticipated foray into the 3D printing market in a glitzy New York press conference set for the evening of October 29, sources said.

Although a number of industry watchers had expected HP's first 3-D printer offering to be a commercial product, Weisler, who has already established a knack for taking HP into new directions by launching a phablet in India and pushing HP heavily into the Android market, is going to deliver a consumer 3-D printer product that can be used by creative artists and do-it-yourselfers (DIYers), sources said.

Existing offerings  can be bought for a few hundred pounds,The Da Vinci 1.0 comes fully enclosed, offering users protection from the high temperatures of the printing nozzle ensuring that printing by-products aren't released outside the printing area. It houses a generous build area for its affordable price, at 7.8 by 7.8 by 7.8 inches (20x20x20cm). It uses ABS plastic filament cartridges, available in 12 colors.

Users can access and download 3D object files at XYZ World, an open-source 3D cloud library, featuring thousands of designs. XYZ World includes pre-loaded designs that users can modify and customize to their preference. Users can upload and share their own designs with the community as well, and rate designs using a user-generated five-star rating system.

The Da Vinci 1.0 is an out-of-the-box printer with no assembly or equipment adjustment required, making it a genuine plug-and-play personal 3D printer. The Da Vinci is equipped with a three-step EZ Mode designed to make 3D printing simple and painless for non-experienced users. With Smart Platform Auto Calibration, the distance between the nozzle and print-bed is automatically calibrated to the best position.
