Kids today have a lot of options when it comes to toys that they can play with. Aside from the classic toys, there are also some new ones that feature advanced technologies. Some of these toys may even have their adult counterparts since older people can also have fun with them. One example is the 3D printer. Kids can now have the chance to play with such a device, thanks to the new Da Vinci MiniMaker 3D Printer.
The Da Vinci MiniMaker 3D Printer by XYZ Printing introduces kids to the wonderful world of 3D printing. This new technology might be more suited for grownups. But that does not necessarily mean that kids can try it out. This new 3D printer is designed especially for kids as an initial introduction to a new way to design and create objects. The kids’ first foray into this new technology is not quite complicated at all. In fact, there are quite a lot of 3D models that they can check out and then download in order to start printing. They can choose from around 5,000 3D models from the XYZ Printing gallery. Once they have chosen an ideal 3D model, then they are ready to print.
The XYZ Printing Da Vinci MiniMaker 3D Printer features an auto-leveling bed and an auto-calibrating extruder to ensure quality of every 3D print. Its compact size is able to print smaller objects, ideal for those who are relative beginners at 3D printing. If kids wish to proceed into designing their own models for printing, they can use the XYZMaker, the 3D modeling software designed mainly for beginners. The intuitive and easy-to-use software tools will enable the kids to create any object they desire for printing. The Da Vinci MiniMaker 3D Printer also makes use of child- and eco-friendly printing materials such as the biodegradable PLA filament, which is considered as easy for kids to use.
And to further fuel the child’s interest, XYZ Printing also offer access to their K-12 STEAM curriculum for developing skills and knowledge in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. The curriculum integrates the use of the Da Vinci MiniMaker 3D printer. For those who are interested, the Da Vinci MiniMaker is available at Amazon for around $210.
