Kogan.com has introduced a new range of affordable 3D printers in the Australian market.

Retailing in the sub-$1000 price range, Kogan’s da Vinci 1.0 is one of the most affordable plug-n-play 3D printers in the world, designed specifically for households and small businesses, and capable of printing items 20% larger than what other 3D printers in its class can print.

For many people, 3D printing technology is out of reach due to the cost factor. However, Kogan’s efficient, online-only business model allows Australian buyers to get the da Vinci 1.0 3D printer for just $699.

Winner of the 2014 CES Editor’s Choice Award, the da Vinci 1.0 3D printers are easy to use, require no set-up, and have a smart design, unique safety features and an open source Cloud database allowing users to create thousands of items, from bowls and cups to key chains and smartphone cases in 12 different colours.

Key features of Kogan’s da Vinci 1.0 3D printers include plug-and-play operation with no assembly or equipment adjustment required; large build size, printing items at 20x20x20cm; easy-to-install refillable filament cartridges available in 12 colours; closed printing area to protect users from high printing temperatures, also ensuring printing by-products aren’t released outside the printing area; and open source Cloud database featuring thousands of 3D models for users to customise.
