3D Systems today unveiled the new CubePro 3D printer, a simultaneous triple-color, multi-materials, large capacity, prosumer 3D printer.
The CubePro features a controlled environment print chamber and automated settings, large print platform, high-resolution prints and quick set up. Available in three print head configuration CubePro allows users to get more expressive with 3D printing in up to 3 simultaneous colors and more color options.
CubePro is connected through an easy-to-use color touchscreen display and mobile and WiFi. It is powered by the Cubify mobile app letting users print on the go direct from their Shelf, prepping files and sending to print, all from an iOS, Android or Windows phone.
CubePro uses cartridges system that allows users to send back empty cartridges to designated 3DS locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new cartridges and return used ABS and PLA prints for responsible recycling or composting by 3DS. CubePros are shipped from local distribution centers reducing freight.
According to the company, hotline and email support is available everyday from 3:00 am to 8:00 pm EST to customers.

Check their review, I can not find any other company or other 3d printer worse than them.

So here's my question: what's the resolution horizontally? 75 µm vertically is pretty good but the level of slop in the horizontal plane still leaves these things looking pretty grainy. When Hewlett-Packard comes on the scene with their machine do you think they'll have this vulnerability solved?

"CubePro uses cartridges system that ALLOWS users to send back empty cartridges to designated 3DS locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new cartridges" This is funny. What they actually mean is: "CubePro uses a cartridge system that FORCES users to send back empty cartridges to designated 3DS locations for reuse in exchange for a discount on new, much too expensive, cartridges" Nothing is gained with a cartridge system like this. If there must be a cartridge, what they should have done is one which can be freely refilled by the user. That would keep the filament safe and prices low. This is just another cheap shot at milking users for extra money.

Not bfb3000 in a new box, but a cubex in a new box ;) But hey: if they have figured out how to fix the many bad sides of the cubex....it's worth the money. On the other hand....i don't think they have.

@jd90: That's where they can earn the most money.

Still the cartridges for a "pro" system. OK, protecting the filament from particulates is good, and some people really need protection of their materials from humidity, but I really don't like their cartridge system. I don't think I should have to mail them in.
