3D Systems' Cube 3D printer has been awarded an American Technology Award (ATA) for outstanding achievement in Technology Manufacturing. Also known as the Termans, in honor of Frederick Emmons Terman, the widely credited father of Silicon Valley, the ATA’s recognize products and services that have significantly advanced technology.
President of the TechAmerica Foundation, Jennifer Kerber, explained: "The quality of nominees for this year’s Termans is a clear indication of the vibrancy of the American technology industry and we are thrilled to be able to recognize 3D Systems for their contribution to the industry and their outstanding achievement."
The Cube 3D printer started shipping to the first customers two weeks ago (at the time of writing) including 3D Systems' founder, Chuck Hull, and is touted as the company's first 3D printer for the home. The WiFi connectivity and simple software aim to make for a 'plug and play' experience.
