CubePro 3D Systems
It may come as no surprise 3D Systems has kicked off international technology event International CES 2014 with a handful of major announcements, the first being a new prosumer 3D printer.
The global 3D printing giant unveiled its new CubePro 3D printer today (January 6th), with this never-before-seen machine offering faster, simultaneous printing in triple colour, a large capacity and multi material capabilities.
Moreover, CubePro features a controlled environment print chamber that assures high-fidelity performance and delivers professional quality prints consistently and with the ease. Prosumers and hobbyists alike can rely on CubePro to test and perfect their designs and print in real thermoplastic materials, resulting in parts that are durable and accurate right at their workstation.
Rajeev Kulkharni, Vice-President, General Manger, Consumer Products at 3D Systems, said: "We are proud to be the first to deliver professional quality prints to the consumer and prosumer, enabling educators, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts to match their creativity with greater productivity.
"The CubePro is the ultimate desktop 3D printer for the lab, workshop and office, compressing development cycles and increasing productivity."
