    If that photo is accurate, it looks like the size that can be manufactured is more like a 5.5″ cube, not 5.5 cubic inches, yes?

      Yes, good point! I reworded that part. Thanks for the correction.

    With the cost of a Cube one could get 3 http://pirate3d.com/ and be left with extra for more printing wire ;)

      I was going to buy one, but then I read “Estimated delivery: Feb 2014″

    As you say in the article ‘ users still have to master the software before modeling and printing any design they can imagine. Mastery takes time and motivation.’ Most software developers are catering for a public who will download template designs and 3D print or ‘customise’ design tempates with some modifications and 3D print. We have been developing 3D modelling software that makes it easy to design and be creative without a huge learning curve. We use a 3D haptic device and have designed the low cost bundle for professional designer makers and applied artists who are ‘non-CAD users but desperately want to work digitally and in 3D to engage with 3D digital technologies. My company’s product, and other more modelling type products seems to be off the radar of writers about 3D printing and the software being used for digitaldesigning. This is a pity as the mainly CAD type packages mentioned, such as Tinkercad and Autodesk.s 123D Design, Catch, etc, disenfranchises whole groups on the arts side. Be good to have wider perspective as products like ours, coupled with even lower price points for home 3D printers with higher functionality and ease of use, will help the move towards and into a more mainstream market.

    The first truly viable inkjet printers, and particularly the first SoHo sized lasers, were up around the $1000 mark if not a little more … if you have a need that only an ink/toner (rather than pin-and-ribbon or daisywheel) printer – or a 3D one – can fill, that’s around the level where it starts to become a serious proposition.

    It may yet be a while before the price is down into double digits instead, but it’s certainly on its way.

    Cube is one of the best 3D printer that can be bought from the market. the printer is in competition with many more printers with high accuracy and a high speed in printing
