Until then very often reserved for professionals, the 3D printer is opening up a little more to the general public with “Cube”. Marketed for a few days by 3D Systems, this new generation printer for individuals is much more affordable and practical to use than before.
If the price of this new Cube increases from $ 1299 to $ 1569, it is indeed lower than what we find on the rest of the market ($ 2615 for the CubeX, pro version). This second generation promises, in addition to a greater choice of materials and colors, improved performance with up to 1.5 times faster printing speed and 2 times greater accuracy of printed parts. WiFi has also made its appearance.
A Print Pack offer, including, in addition to the Cube, four cartridges, 25 free printable object models and Cubify® Invent design software is available for $ 1290 excl.
3D systems relies, alongside its Cube printer, on its Cubify community site, a space for creating and exchanging models of objects or finished objects.
