I’ve been watching Fabbaloo friend Joel Telling’s series of videos on his testing of the Craftbot FLOW IDEX XL, and the process seems quite familiar to me.
We review an astounding story on Forbes that recommends ancient 3D printers as the best buys for 2020.
I’ve just noticed that 3D Systems discontinued their final Cube 3D printer earlier this year, a milestone of sorts.
This morning I noticed a story from an obscure website detailing an announcement from 3D Systems about a product they introduced three years ago!
Yesterday 3D Systems announced not only the demise of The Cube, but also their entire consumer brand, Cubify. What are the implications of this?
In retrospect perhaps not the most surprising development, 3D printing giant 3D Systems has discontinued the Cube, their flagship consumer 3D printer option. Why did this happen?
Where can you buy a 3D printer? Harrods, of course.
The entry-level Cube personal 3D printer from Cubify has been placed on the list of “Top 10 Gadgets” at the Gitex Technology Week, which is a major conference for the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia regions. The award states: 3D printing is the biggest tech trend of the year (fact) and… Continue reading Cube Wins Award
There’s more 3D printed Star Trek with a view of this video by PC Magazine, who took on the task of 3D printing the Starship Enterprise on their 3D Systems Cube personal 3D printer. It’s a time lapse video, obviously, as 3D printers simply are not fast. This shows one of the main challenges… Continue reading 3D Printing The Enterprise

At CES we discussed the design of 3D System’s new CubeX personal 3D printer with Ian Adkins, the original developer of the BFB line of 3D printers. Adkins now works for 3D Systems after Bits From Bytes was acquired a few years ago. It turns out there are a number of subtle improvements and… Continue reading A Bit More on the CubeX 3D Printer
3D Systems has abruptly introduced a new version of their Cube 3D printer management software (Cubify) specifically for OSX. This is a major step by 3D Systems, who up to now have not offered OS/X-based software for, um, well, anything as far as we can tell. The software performs well, offering an extremely simple… Continue reading Cubify Now Macify’d

The print bed appeared glossy for some unknown reason. We wondered if the surface was made that way and investigated with a finger. We… Continue reading That Sticky Cube
