The Cube 3 is a cute 3D printer to say the least

Printers
Hi, guys. **** Ngo here and this is the Cube 3 3D printer form 3D System. Cube 3 because it's the third generation of the printer that looks like a cube. Now this one here is dual extruder. It means it can print from two sources of filaments at the same time. Do you see them? Exactly. This one has a great design so that the filament when loaded still make it very compact. On the side here, there is a [UNKNOWN] inside and it fit in this holder perfectly. Same for the other side. And on top, you can also very easily insert the. Fillman onto the print head like that. Now as to how a 3D printer works, the print head pulls the plastic string, melts it, and extrudes it onto the platform what it is here to form the free object. Now the platform here is removable. and that makes it very easy for you to clean after the print or lace it with glue before a print. The other front of the printer has a small touch screen to manage its functions including printing. And on this side here it has a USB port for you to print directly from a thumb drive. So gigabyte thumb drive is included, but you can also use any thumb drive you want. Now the thing I like the most about this printer is the fact that it can calibrate itself. Basically it can make sure that the print platform is at the perfect distance from the print head above. And also perfectly level. The second cool thing about the prefab form can move up and down also backward and forward allowing the prehead about to move only sideways. And that mechanism allows the printer to be. Small in physical size, but can still print pretty large objects. And speaking of object, the printer works really well printing small object like this lovely turtle right here, but when it comes to bigger objects like this vase, it was a hit or miss. For example, I tried to print another vase. This one right here, this one is a 15-hour job, so, I left the printer working overnight. When I came back in the morning, well it made this, at first, and then it made, all this. Not what I wanted. [MUSIC] Now the thing is that it actually made all this much perfectly and then it messed up the rest. And that means I have no idea what happened. It worked. Then it didn't work. One thing for sure, though, this is a lot of [UNKNOWN] being wasted and that's not cool because. Each of the capsules is cost $50 and only has enough material to print about five of these large objects. So what I'm holding here is about $10 worth of material. And that's, of course, after the cost of the printer itself, which is $1000. Now that's not cheap, but it's also not too expensive for a dual extruder. So in all, the Cube 3 is quite a good printer to have. It's. Fun and very easy to use even though it's a bit noisy, but remember it might cost you a lot down the line just for the material alone. [INAUDIBLE] Printer here. Check out my full review at cnet.com, Personally, I like it because at least it reminded me of my lovely hair. Or the like of which. And that's because I'm Doug Ngo, and this has been the first look at the Cube 3 3D printer from 3D Systems. I'll make a wig out of this.
