The Da Vinci is a plug-n-play 3D printer designed for households, small businesses, and the education market. It offers safety features and an open-source database of free 3D object designs. The Da Vinci is an out-of-the-box printer with no assembly or equipment adjustment required, making it a genuine plug-and-play personal 3D printer. 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. Software is automatically upgraded.
It is an enclosed machine, protecting users from the high temperatures required to print and ensuring that printing by-products aren't released outside the printing area. It has a generous build area for its price, at 7.8 by 7.8 by 7.8 inches (20x20x20cm). It uses ABS plastic filament cartridges, available in 12 colors.
Users can find 3D object files at XYZ World, an open-source 3D cloud library, featuring thousands of downloadable 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can we use regular spools or do we need to buy your cartridge
My understanding is that the cartridges are chipped and thus are proprietary. UPDATE: yes, there is a chip. The standard cartridge is loaded with at least 600 grams of material. I do have a new cartridge now but not yet the printer. However, I believe the chip will keep track of filament used and expire when 600g is consumed - whether or not it comes from the cartridge. The approach shown here: http://3dprintingindustry.com/2014/02/05/unboxing-printing-da-vinci-1-0-3d-printer merely bypasses the cartridge filament, but doesn't change the chip's restrictions as that is all in software.
