3D Systems unveiled its CubeX desktop 3D printer, with triple-color capabilities. According to the company, the printer can print as big as a basketball with 1,070 cubic inches of space, or 10.8 in. x 10.45 in. x 9.5 in. It can print in three modes: High Definition (125 Micron), Crisp Definition (250 Micron) or Standard Definition (500 Micron). It also provides a choice of print fill density: lite, medium or solid. CubeX prints in both PLA and ABS plastics with optional, peel-away supports for the most complex prints.
It prints in both compostable PLA and recyclable ABS plastics, and offers multi-color choices, starting with basic single color CubeX, dual color and material CubeX Duo or the triple-color, multi-material CubeX Trio.
The MoistureLock cartridge ensures extended shelf life and total material usage, improving print quality and sustainability, the company says. The printer detects material type based on the cartridge, providing automatic settings when switching materials between ABS and PLA.
The new CubeX uses a heatless print pad that delivers power conservation compared to other 3D printers. Each printer includes three cartridges, ten free prints, and Cubify Invent design software.
