Getting spare parts for your XYZPrinting Da Vinci printer (whatever model) can be pretty difficult because the official XYZeSHOP on the Internet does only have a few parts available and the company rather repairs a machine then selling parts for it.
Now, since I have a lot over video's on my channel about the Da Vinci Pro, a lot of people see me as some kind of Da Vinci authority (which I am not) or even think I work for the company behind these printers (again, there is no link what-so-ever between me and XYZPrinting, nor do I get paid or even get to review a loan machine). But, to answer the ever asked question where to buy spare parts, the answer is very simple...
Find the name of the part and search for it on Ebay.com
I just added a page with links to my most favorite printers on the market today.
The links on this page bring you to the place where you can get the best deals for this printers and yes, they are affiliate links.
As described in my video, that I link under this post, I don't do the affiliate links because of the income but because this is the way for my sponsors to check if my channel is worth it to be sending review machines. I do get a small percentage of the money paid when you buy something at their websites, but that money will flow directly beck into the channel in terms of filament, a new printer, that kind of things.

First thoughts after 3 days of playing
From GearBest I received the Creality CR-10 Mini printer. It’s not at all mini, because the printbed is 30 x 20 x 30cm, but it’s smaller then the original CR-10, therefore they call it the Mini.
I have been playing with the machine for 3 days now and I must say that I yet haven’t found anything I dislike on the machine. I have to do a whole lot more tests, but so far so good.
If you want to check out the machine yourself, please take a look here and use the Coupon code GBCRUS to get yourself a nice discount.
From Gearbest I received the Anet E-10 for a review.
This printer came here only a few days ago and my first results were nice, but not spectacular.
Then I started to play with the mechanical structure of the machine. I tightened the belts, turned the Z axis motors so that the connectors are facing to the back of the machine and tightened all the screws of the machine, making it way more sturdy. And see here, the machine is really doing a great job now.
If you like the printer, check it out here on Gearbest. They have made a coupon code for me so you can buy it a little cheaper.
Also, When buying from my link, you support my YouTube channel !!!
Also, I made a User Group on Thingiverse for this printer. Please check it out.
As i am building a lot of 3D printers in the past weeks, I also had to choose if I would use the Original E3D v6 hot ends, or if I would go for cheap hot-ends that, due to almost the same formfactor, will also fit in the printers I am building.
I have been testing a lot of cheap hot-ends and I ended up liking this particular hot-end from Banggood because of it’s extreme low price compared to a pefect quality.
Please let me know in the comments down below what your thoughts are about this hot-end.
At this moment I am working to get a much better website with more information and possibilities then ever before.
The website will be live in about 2 weeks from now, let’s say the 16th of August, maybe even a bit earlier. It all depends on my spare time I can use to make the website.
In the mean time, please visit my YouTube channel that has grown to over 2000 subscribers already. There must by nice content on it for you to !!!
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you in a few weeks
