Back at CES 2014, Taiwan-based XYZprinting showcased its new da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D printer, which is set to ship in mid-April. The company is not wasting any time getting its latest 3D printers to market - XYZprinting today announced its da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D printer is available for pre-order.
XYZprinting's da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D printer will have several major changes from its predecessor. The device sports a dual extrusion head which allows it to print PVA along with the main printing material, or print in two colors at the same time. It prints ABS and PLA, has a printer bed that can handle objects with dimensions of up to 150 x 200 x 200 mm (5.9 x 7.8 x 7.8 inch), which is slightly smaller than the da Vinci 1.0.
The printer houses a 0.4mm nozzle. XYZprinting says the printer can achieve a resolution of up to 100 microns per layer, same as the da Vinci 1.0. It will also feature a specially designed print head, smart printing such as empty filament detection, estimating filament usage, print-bed auto callibration and automatic nozzle cleaning.
Pre-orders for the da Vinci 2.0 Duo just opened up. At TWD21,999 (USD722 / EUR524), the printer is cheaper than most of its competition. For the first 100 orders the price will also include a 600g ABS cartridge for the printer.

I bought one on Amazon and use it with my students in a HS CAD class I teach. Nice quality prints although anything with a tip or a pointed top experience some slumping as the printer moves to the next level quicker then the ABS cools. As far as quality goes, for $500 I'm happy when you compare it to a $2200 Makerbot. This is also a very hackable machine so I think it is worth the investment.

John, my prints look nothing like that. Mine are terrific. I have no relationship with xyzprinting other than being a customer. It appears you have 3 things going on. 1) mechanical setup. YES, the bed is compensated for in software, but the more accurate the mechanical setup the better your print quality will be. I suggest perform auto calibrate, then look at the numbers to see if you can reduce them, then calibrate again. 2) it appears you attempted to remove the model prematurely. After the print is finished open the front door, turn off the printer, and wait about an hour. The print will shrink as it cold releasing itself. It should take almost no pressure to remove the model. Also, on models with a large flat surface and light fill, like the vase, try printing without using glue on the bed. 3) it seems you temperature may have fluctuated. Keep all does closed when printing with abs, and definitely avoid any drafty areas. Hope this helps. If not, please come fl visit the xyzprinting Facebook page, I'm sure they will help you get it right. Regards, Kieth

I would like to warn everyone before buying this printer. The print quality is very poor! Even not large print of ABS was break;( When removing the support the whole model will be damaged, it is practically not impossible ... ABS is a very poor quality.
