Cube 3 and CubePro offer multi-colour and multi-materials, ultra-high resolution settings of 70-micron thin print layers to give smoothness and fine detail and faster print speeds.

A smartphone app will support printing on-the-go as the products will ship in July. Both printers feature a colour touchscreen with an intuitive user interface and LEDs highlighting prints in action, and are equipped with fast Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Cube 3 is a dual material, plug-and-play, child-safe IEC 60950 certified 3D printer with an affordable price tag of just £999. The printer is supplied with two starter cartridges in neon green and white, and 25 designs to start printing quickly.

Cube 3 is said to deliver up to two times faster print speed and accuracy than other printers on the market for printed parts up to 6” cubed. It prints in two materials and up to two colours, simultaneously using compostable PLA and recyclable ABS plastics. Both materials are available in 23 different colour cartridges. Instant material loading makes it easier than changing an ink cartridge.

The professionally capable CubePro is a triple material, controlled print chamber desktop 3D printer and is said to print 2.5 times larger than any other desktop prosumer and hobbyist printer (275x265x240mm). In addition to ABS and PLA plastic, CubePro also supports a new engineering grade nylon material suitable for end-use applications.
