I just bought a Da Vinci Jr 1.0w a few weeks ago and was really excited to finally have a printer of my own. But after using it for awhile and realizing that everything about this printer is proprietary, from the filament used to it's slicing software. I find myself looking for ways to improve this printer. Does anyone here know of any mods or upgrades that would allow the use of other filament types (ABS, nylon, etc) and improve print quality?

3D scanner on the Da Vinci Jr 3-in-1 on a Mac

by Sentinel352


Has anyone been successful making the scan work on a Mac... No way even to calibrate it. It starts rotating, then stops, and the software seems processing endlessly... And nothing happens.
I had once the step-by-step process to calibrate displayed, it even showed the progress bar, but then the software crashed and I've never been able to get there again!

Any suggestion/help would be welcome.

Thanks a lot.

Printer resets when I start a print

by TheJadeRabbit

Hi hopefully I can get some help here because this is driving me crazy. Whenever I try to print a file, the printer turns off after verifying the file and resets itself. The file was sliced in the XYZ Maker Suite for the DaVinci Jr 1.0 which I have. The file is fine because it prints on my other printer and this printer takes it fine. I also tried printing over usb, but that had the same problem. I tried a different sd card with no luck, so I formatted that one as Fat32, but it still didn't work. The connections I believe to all be fine, so I think it is an issue with the firmware. Although it is at 2.4.9, the newest, so I don't know what the problem is now. Thanks!
