3D Printing Geeks:
Review XYZprinting da Vinci 2.0 Duo
Da Vinci has stepped up the game with the 2.0 offering features like a heated build plate (reduces print failures) and dual extruders. It?ll print in ABS and PLA, but now they are using a proprietary cartridge. Expect to take some time to learn the machine. Users recommend disconnecting it from your router when printing so as to free yourself from proprietary filament lockdown.
Score: 6.0
Review XYZprinting da Vinci 2.0 Duo
The da Vinci 2.0 duo fits the affordable but effective mold Xyz's product line has built for itself. Its rather noteworthy weight keeps it still and steady during prints, avoiding the problem some lighter printers have of shaking and marring the print as the extruder moves along the various axes. The dual extrusion system gives prints an added dimension from a design standpoint.
Score: 9.0

Review XYZprinting da Vinci 2.0 Duo
Software prints good quality and consistently on simple designs. there are almost no print settings that you can play with. it makes the software easy to use but a hindrance when you finally learn what you really want the printer to do. dual extruder can only print colored abs because that is all XYZ sells. On top of that because the software is so basic, there is no easy way to print a multi color piece.
Score: 6.9


Are you looking for a good entry model for an affordable price and would you like to print in multiple colors, then the Da Vinci 2.0 Duo is a very suitable choice. The installation is easy and the accompanying software may not be the most comprehensive on the market, but it is very easy to use.

The calibration of the printer is fully automatic. Because the printer can only work with ABS, it is not surprising that the printer has a heatable build surface. Do take into account that you can only use filaments from XYZprinting.
