davinci-mninmaker-01Thanks to the technology of 3D printing, things that were previously limited to expensive production machines and companies with a lot of resources can now be made by people at home. Granted in terms of production of scale, individuals will probably not be able to match factories, but it does open the door to a lot of possibilities.

It could be used to create prototypes and ideas that can then be marketed and sold to other companies. It can also be used to prove theories and concepts, so like we said, there are a ton of possibilities out there and if you’d like to explore those possibilities, XYZprinting has announced the availability of the da Vinci miniMaker which is priced at $249.

Designed for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM), the miniMaker is aimed at the education sector where the company envisions 3D printers can be used to deliver educational material in new ways.

The miniMaker is small and compact and measures 15.75 x 13.23 x 14.25 inches, making it ideal for storage in the classroom. The materials used are also biodegradeable and are both DEHP-free and Heavy Metal-free to ensure that they are safe for its users. Customers who purchase the printer will also be given access to a variety of educational materials and tools. If this sounds like something you might want to purchase for the classroom or for your kids, head on over to XYZprinting’s website.
