3D Systems has announced a preview of its new CubeJet 3D printer. Priced under $5,000, this category-defining, desktop 3D printer delivers vibrant, full-color, high-resolution parts for a wide range of modeling and real-use products. Designed specifically for small businesses, independent entrepreneurs, hobbyists and educators, the CubeJet combines 3DS' powerful ColorJet Printing (CJP) technology with its award-winning, easy-to-use consumer Cube printers' user experience to deliver the first truly affordable, full-color desktop 3D printing experience. The CubeJet will be on display for the first time at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, NV, January 7-10, 2014, in the 3DS booth 31424 LVCC South Hall 3.
"Leapfrogging full-color printing to the prosumer and consumer desktop in a way that's easy to own and simple to operate redefines the 'possible' for designers, educators, architects, marketers and artists," said Rajeev Kulkarni, Vice President, General Manager, Consumer Products, 3DS. "For the first time ever, everyone can access vibrant parts quickly, accurately and affordably."
Whether you need full-color models or beautifully detailed assemblies that pass for finished products, the new CubeJet delivers. From striking white to photo-realistic pastels and bold, vibrant color, these parts communicate design intent like nothing else can, quickly and affordably. The CubeJet printer offers new levels of productivity with faster print mode options, improved user convenience with mobile connectivity using tablet computers and smartphones, and more powerful coloring and file preparation software tools.
CubeJet printers are expected to commence commercial shipping during the second half of 2014.
