by Reads (2,610)

3D Systems continues to expand with the introduction of the CubeX, offering triple color printing and the largest print volume in its class, earlier this morning in Las Vegas.

3D Systems introduced the “first consumer 3D printer” at CES 2012 that allowed customers to print audio files as well as a variety of other projects. Now the company has created the CubeX, a more advanced (and more expensive) model that allows customers to take their 3D printing to the next level.

The CubeX features three times the print modes as the original Cube with a choice of accuracy – High Definition (125 Micron), Crisp Definition (250 Micron) and Standard Definition (500 Micron) – and a choice of print fill density.

Project size and print speeds have increased with prints as large as a basketball (up to 10.8 x 10.45 x 9.5 inches) two times as fast as the original Cube. Material options include compostable PLA and recyclable ABS plastics.

The CubeX comes in three configurations: the single color CubeX, dual color CubeX Duo and triple color CubeX Trio with pricing starting at $2499.

3D Systems is taking orders now and expects to begin shipping in February 2013. But don’t place your orders just yet; we’ll be stopping by the 3D Systems Booth this week to get a full demo to share with our readers!
