Close to the center of attention was Abe Reichental CEO at 3D Systems Corp presenting the company’s latest product, the Cube 3 3D printer. According to Reichental, the Cube 3 will bring all the benefits of three-dimensional printing to the family for less than $1000.
Not only that, but the Cube 3 will also increase the size of 3-D creation capability and to make life easier for those new to the world of 3-D printing, will come with its own specially programmed and exceptionally user-friendly mobile app that will make the whole process very straightforward and convenient.
The Cube 3 is capable of creating three-dimensional models up to six cubic inches in size, capable of producing prints to a resolution of 75 microns. Courtesy of preloaded filament jets and its own auto-leveling print pad, the Cube 3 is able to print two materials and two colors simultaneously through using recyclable ABS and compostable PLA plastic, which, in a choice of more than 20 colors. The device’s has been designed in such a fashion that it will allow you for the mixing and matching of colors and materials.
