After three decades of development, 3D printing is no longer an exclusive and expensive hobby, and home 3D printers are becoming increasingly available and affordable. McKinsey Global Institute has forecast that 3D printing could generate US$230 billion to US$550 billion per year by 2025 in terms of market scale. The largest source of this, it suggests, would be from consumer uses, followed by direct manufacturing and the use of 3D printing for tools and moulds. Although 3D printers are still primarily targeting hobbyists, engineers and techies, mainstream consumers are not far behind.

XYZprinting, a 3D printing designer and manufacturer, today launched da Vinci 1.0 AiO, an all-in-one desktop printer which integrates scanning and printing capabilities, to the mainland China market. The concept of all-in-one 3D printers isn’t new: there are several similar printers like AiORobotics’ Zeus, but da Vinci 1.0 AiO differentiates itself with a more affordable price and laser sensing technology.

Moreover, XYZprinting manufactures the printers in Thailand and has a monthly capacity of 10,000 to 20,000 units, according to Simon Shen, chairman of the company. In Chinese market, de Vinci 1.0 AiO has been on sale on e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Taobao, JD and Suning, as well as the bricks-and-mortar Suning Appliance store.
