It comes as no surprise that 3D printers have been evolving into a compact device that would be considered fit for mainstream use. We have already seen a couple of innovative 3D printers like the Micro and Mattel 3D Toy Printing. Cubibot is the latest 3D printer that claims to go mainstream and is being launched via a Kickstarter campaign.
The makers of Cubibot claim that it’s the smallest 3D Printer available and is also affordable as well. Priced at $149 and Cubibot claims to match with the other more expensive 3D printers when it comes to the features. Apart from the affordable price tag, Cubibot will also not consume much space due to its smallest footprint. The printer offers cloud-printing, heated bed and will come with a companion app.
This is what Aria Noorazar, Co-Founder of Cubibot had to say “We’ve been perfecting Cubibot for over two and a half years to achieve a smarter, safer and easier-to-use personal product that makes 3D printing accessible to the masses and it does not require 3D printing expertise.” He further added that “If you can set up and use a regular printer, you can use Cubibot.”
A quick look at the features tells us that the Cubibot 3D printer is capable enough to serve both regular users and professionals alike. It can print in PLA’s, Nylon and comes with a self-leveling build platform. Other innards include a high-temperature nozzle and web-based platform. From the looks of it, Cubibot is as easy to set up as a regular printer and is rated to print at speeds of up to 80 millimeters per second. The Cubibot is accompanied with software that lets you print the preset models without having to do any modeling.
That being said, the 3D printer is currently being offered in two specs, the Cubibot ($299) and the CubiOne ($149). Cubibot has some advantages over the CubiOne, and that includes the Smart Self Levelling, Mobile App, WiFi and a heated bed. The project can be backed on Kickstarter, and the estimated date is Feb 2018.
