3D Systems Cube Pro Duo $3000
The CubePro Duo from 3D Systems is a 3D printer capable of printing with up to two colors of ABS, PLA, and Nylon materials, at resolutions as fine as 70 microns. Design models up to 9 x 10.75 x 9.5″ in volume, or larger if using just one extruder, and the CubePro will build them by melting plastic in thin sheets, depositing layer upon layer until they form a three-dimensional object.
Filaments for the CubePro come in smart cartridges that detect the type and quantity of material in the cartridge, which prompts the CubePro to adjust printing settings accordingly. The double extruders work with over 20 colors of filament to produce hundreds of possible color combinations for your prints.
Also included is 3D Systems’ Cubify Invent software, which allows you to create and modify 3D designs in preparation for printing. You can also design your model in any other CAD software, because the CubePro software will convert your .stl file to the .cubepro extension that your CubePro will print. Transfer your .cubepro file onto the included USB stick and insert directly into your printer, or send it wirelessly via Wi-Fi from your desktop.
The fully-assembled CubePro Duo comes with white and neon green ABS cartridges, 25 free designs, and a USB stick to help you start printing right out of the box.
