3D Printing with the DaVinci Jr.

Untitled
This Christmas was filled with surprises! My daughter received a 3D printer! It is amazing what kids can do today, with all of the technology out there. This printer is the DaVinci Junior 1.1 and it prints anything that is smaller than 6"X6"X6". The software for the DaVinci Jr. is made by XYZ printing. Even the software is fairly easy to use with fonts, shapes, and symbols to add to one design.

Here is a short video of the DaVinci printer at work. It printed a heart locket first as a sample of what the 3D printer can do. Now the possibilities are endless. I hope our daughter sees this as a huge opportunity to create whatever she wants to create. It is hard to get teenagers excited about anything, but I think she is excited about this.

If you had a 3D printer what would you create? Purse hardware, zipper pulls, and monogram stuff comes to mind. I can't wait to try it out too.
