The Cube meets all IEC 60950 Printer Safety Requirements making it safe for ‘at home’ use by adults and children alike. Current Cube printers received “easiest to use” and “most reliable” awards from most leading publications and the new Cube 3 is even easier to own and simpler to use with advanced mobile printing capabilities through seamless integration with a new Cubify® mobile app along with higher speed WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity. Cube 3 features an auto-leveling printpad and easier supports removal for the delivery of more complex prints. Cube 3 will be on display for the first time at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, NV, January 7-10, 2014, in the 3DS booth 31424 LVCC South Hall 3.
“Cube 3 makes home 3D printing real and easy. For the first time it’s affordable and simple to print what you use and wear, print for your home and for those you love, all with over 20 colours in synchronous multi-materials and colour combinations, in three dimensions,” said Cathy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer, 3DS.
Cube® 3 Features:
Print Experience – Delivers up to 2X faster print speed and accuracy than competitors for printed parts up to 6” cubed. Full tech specs are available here.
Simultaneous Dual Colour + Multi-Material = More Choice – Cube now prints in two materials and up to two colours, simultaneously using compostable PLA and recyclable ABS plastics. Both materials are available in 25 different colour cartridges. Cube offers a choice of print mode fill density: lite, medium and solid in both PLA and ABS plastics with optional easy, breakaway supports for the most complex prints.
Instant Load Cartridge – Instant material loading is now easier than changing an ink cartridge. Moisture-lock cartridges ensure extended shelf life and total material usage, improving print quality and sustainability. The printer detects material type automatically based on the cartridge, eliminating the need to change print settings. The cartridges are easy to load and store while preserving the life and quality of the materials.
Kid-Safe for everyone – Cube meets all IEC 60950 Printer Safety Requirements, making it the only consumer 3D printer that is kid-safe for the home.
Convenience in the palm of your hand – Enjoy the freedom of mobile printing direct from the Cubify app for iOS, Android and Windows. Find new things to print in the curated brand collections or browse the Design Feed for inspiration to add to your Shelf. Prep and print from your smartphone direct to Cube.
Easier to Use, Sleeker Design – Building on its iconic design, Cube 3 features a new color touchscreen with an intuitive user interface and sleek LEDs highlighting prints in action, and is equipped with faster Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an auto-leveling printpad and easy supports removal for complex prints.
Sustainable Systems – Send back your empty cartridges to designated 3DS locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new cartridges and return your used ABS and PLA prints for responsible recycling or composting by 3DS. All Cubes are shipped from local distribution centers reducing freight. Cube 3 comes with a proprietary print pad that conserves power compared to other 3D printers. 3DS is committed to making prosumer 3D printing affordable, safe and sustainable.
