Here's a $499 3D printer

After the deluge of announcements from MakerBot and 3D Systems over the past two days, it's likely going to be tough for any other 3D printing companies to cut through the noise this week at CES -- though XYZprinting's got something most of the competition can't match: a sub-$500 price point; $499, to be exact. The Taiwanese company will be brushing elbows with the big boys, showcasing the da Vinci 2.0, a semi-enclosed cube printer with a 7.8 x 7.8 x 7.8 build volume, which is set to launch in Europe, Japan and the US come March.
