3D Systems’ CubeX 3D printer does three color prints ‘as big as a basketball’
Here’s even MORE 3D printer news from 3D Systems at CES 2013, via Engadget:
3D Systems isn’t stopping with the release of one 3D printer at this year’s CES. Nope, the company’s launching a new, high-end model on our very stage. It’s calling the CubeX “the ultimate desktop 3D printer,” featuring a build platform that can handle prints up to 1,030 cubic inches (10.8 x 10.45 x 9.5-inches) — or as big as a basketball, hence the above image. The CubeX has three printing modes at resolutions up to 125 microns and three different print fill densities. Like its lower-priced counterpart, the printer can do PLA or ABS plastics and features a cartridge system for feeding in plastic. It’ll run you $2,499. More info can be had in the press release after the break — or by watching our stage interview with the company’s CEO.
