Printing in three colours doesn’t seem that impressive. However, in terms of a 3D printer, it’s pretty damn impressive – given that most print in one colour, and some offer two colour printing. This printer, the CubeX, is the only desktop printer that an print in three – and was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
The CubeX can print one big basketball, according to Cubify – though not regulation size – with it able to print any item that can fit inside its 10.8 x 10.45 x 9.5 inch printing area. According to them as well, it can print twice as fast as its rivals, and offers more choices in how you print – including the accuracy and fill density. The printer supports both PLA and ABS plastics, and has automatic switching between the two materials.
Pricing starts at US$2,499 for the single-colour print model. The three-colour model is aroud US$4,399. You can order it from their website.
