  • My Experiences with the XYZ Da Vinci 1.0

    Hey guys!

    This weekend I'm going to be writing about my experiences after my first week of printing on the XYZ da vinci 1.0.

    So far I'm quite impressed, but there are many problems and caveats I have with it. Some I've already addressed, some I think I'll be able to address, and some I'd like some forum input on for ideas.

    Has anyone on the forum used another slicer program with this printer? I'm going to be trying that next, because the XYZWare software really is just horrible to work with. It seems to make quite nice prints on its own, but the interface is miserable and it's just slow - especially with models that have higher triangle counts, to the point where it's almost unusable unless I have an hour to wait to see if the program is really thinking or if it just froze.

    Anyway, I'll be updating this with pictures and such soon.

      My experience so far is that the white filament that came with the printer is rubbish. The black that i bought extra is much better in printquality and sticking to the heat bed. I also got an extra white filament, so i hope that the sample is just a cheap one and they sell the other with more quality filament.

        got my da vinci yesterday and Im quite happy with it. I have a few problems with the white filament witch came with it a lot of bubbel. So I hope with the black/green one I ordert it would be better.

          Hello,
          I'm new to the Davinci as well. However one thing I've noticed is that bed calibration is key to filament sticking.
          I gave up on the default calibration method, and simply interrupt a sample print by turning the printer off at the test strip and manually move the head to verify ~0.16 clearance to the head all over the bed with a strip of printer paper, as outlined in posts on other forums. A little glue-stick seals the deal, no pun intended.
          Good Luck!
          Casey

              Sure, I can do that. Or, instead of a reply, would you like to post a new thread and I'll sticky that?

                  A FOLLOW UP to this thread...

                  The white filament it looks stronger from the others... I have 7 different colors from XYZ... The blue is good but think the white is the stronger of all.

                  I also feel the EXTRUDER find some hard times to EXTRUDE the white.... As said I 'feel' it...

                  Still as an CSWAIN wrote you need to have your bed adjusted and calibrated... Z offset is a MUST...!!!

                    I have printed the sample using the supplied white filament and it printed excellent. No bubbles. I have spent more time mastering scanning and correcting models to better prep them for printing.

                      I agree the white filament is stronger and smoother
