3D Systems CubeX overview

  • 1Description

The CubeX 3D Printer Duo from 3D Systems has an intuitive touchscreen interface for fast navigation. The CubeX also utilizes 18 available colors and over 4000 potential color combinations in both PLA and ABS plastic cartridges. You can also send back empty cartridges to designated 3D Systems locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new cartridges. You can also send used ABS and PLA prints for responsible recycling and composting by 3D Systems.

The CubeX is Mac and Windows compatible and can print from a USB memory stick. The included Cube software allows you to print using Cube's very own .cube files. While most CAD software may save designs in .stl or .creation files, the Cube software will be able to convert those to .cube files so you can print with ease.

The CubeX 3D Printer Duo can also use two cartridges at a time for a print that uses two different colors. You can also use both ABS and PLA plastic for a multi-material print as well.

Cubify Invent 3D Design Software
The included Cube software lets you prep an existing 3D model for printing on the CubeX. It lets you orient it, scale it, add supports to it if needed, and then turns the model into a .cube file that the Cube can print. If you're looking for a separate design software, check out Cubify Invent on 3D Systems' website. The Cube can directly print .cube files. The Cube software, which comes with the Cube, can convert .stl and .creation files into .cube files. Most CAD software (like Alibre Design, Rhinoceros, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Creo, etc.) can create .stl files. The .obj files from Maya and ZBrush will need to be converted to .stl files first. There is no limit on the file size, but generally anything over 500MB would be considered very large
Multi-color Printing for all Your Designs
With an exclusive part painting tool with paintbrush simplicity, you'll be able to utilize 18 available colors (sold separately) and over 4000 unique color combinations to create a multi-color 3D print
Prints with Multiple Materials
Choose industrial-grade ABS plastic for extreme durability and functionality, or high-quality, strong PLA plastic for high precision, fine detail and soluble support for ease-of-use. Both materials are safe to handle and use
Large Print Size
You'll be able to print parts as large as a basketball, which is up to 10.8 x 10.5 x 9.5 inches. This is when you're using only a single cartridge
3D Printing Services
Make sure to register your CubeX for free on cubify.com so you can easily receive hardware and software updates. You'll also gain access to Cubify 3DCloud printing service, which allows you to store designs on Cubify or use 3DCloud printing for broader material choices and performance properties
The CubeX comes with a proprietary, heatless print pad that conserves power compared to other 3D printers. You can now send back your empty cartridges to designated 3D Systems locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new cartridges. You can also return used ABS and PLA prints for responsible recycling or composting by 3D Systems
