3D Printing: A Look Inside the Future


NEW YORK, N.Y., Jan. 15 – 3D Systems Corporation has built a reputation as the prominent worldwide provider of 3D content-to-print solutions, including 3D printers that design and print outputs directly from digital input. 

Another Dimension to Home Printing

Recently, 3D Systems launched its first consumer 3D printer, appropriately called "The Cube". With this latest technological advancement, end users can now produce 3D products in the comfort of their own homes.

At a price point within reach of both the technological enthusiast and small-businesses alike, "The Cube" is bringing 3D printing to the masses. Sitting at a practical size and weight, quite comparable in size and weight to your home sewing machine, it truly is as easy to use as your regular 2D home printer.

With its plug-and-play simplicity, the Cube has user-friendly features that consumers of all demographics can easily grasp. It has a slick and contemporary design, touch screen technology, and portability that allow it to be convenient, suiting any part of the home, office, or classroom, ready to be used anytime you need it.

Trailblazing a New Market

What used to be considered science fiction is now becoming a reality. Consumers are now able to download the latest smartphone case design, fabricate their own copy and be showing it off to their friends -- all in less time than making the round-trip to your local shopping center.

3D Systems is definitely a step ahead in terms of personal 3D printing as "The Cube" is the first of its kind. It has received many recognitions and awards for this innovation. In June, the company received the American Technology Award for outstanding achievement in Technology Manufacturing, the 2012 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award in October, and was recognized by MAKE Magazine as "Most Reliable" and "Easiest to Use" in November. The Cube was featured on the magazine's cover of its Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing issue.

As the leading global provider of personal, professional and production 3D printers, materials, software, and services, 3D Systems Corporation did not disappoint with their new product. Applying their integrated solutions, development, and manufacturing methods in creating high quality printers, "The Cube" combined convenience and affordability that brings out the artist in everyone.
