MakeUseOf Cubify Cube 3D Printer

Cubify Cube 3D Printer Review and Giveaway

3D printing is the next manufacturing revolution, they tell us. No longer will we need to trek down to the store to buy that widget – we can print one at home. Most affordable 3D printers are sold as self-assembly kits, involving weeks of tinkering to get even the most basic print, but the Cubify Cube promises to be plug-and-plug with minimal fuss. Does it live up to that promise?

The Cube weighs in at a hefty $1299, on the upper middle price range for consumer grade 3D printers. The superior Makerbot Replicator 2 costs $2200, while the cheapest you can find is the Printrbot Simple ($400). The Cube does however, suck you into a closed marketplace for consumables.

Competition Expiry: Friday, January 10th
