As new 3D printer manufacturers enter the market, mainly aided by crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, we have seen a drastic reduction in prices. With that said, it seems like the major established manufacturers have been standing their ground in terms of prices, keeping a nice profit margin on their books.
There are deals that can sometimes pop up though, whether it’s warehouses clearing out their stock, or promotions put on to draw a crowd to a particular website. One such deal has found its way to my desk this morning, and I have to say it’s quite the bargain, therefore I decided to share it with you all.
3D Systems’s Cube 2 3D printer retails for $1299.00 at the Cubify website. Newegg.com, however, is offering the printer for just $599.00. Additionally, one can use ‘VCO’ as a coupon code (can only be used one time per customer) and checkout with Visa Checkout to receive an additional $20 off that price, putting it at just $579.00. To make this deal even better, shipping is absolutely free.
The Cubify Cube 2 3D printer has one of the smaller build volumes of the main 3D printers on the market today, but makes for an amazing machine for those just starting out with the technology. It’s incredibly easy to use and set up, and has some very good specifications as you can see below:
- Print Technology: Plastic Jet Printing (PJP)
- Printer Size 10.25 x 10.25 x 13.3 inches (260 x 260 x 340mm)
- Printer Weight: 9.5lbs (4.3kg)
- Maximum Build Size: 5.5×5.5×5.5 inches (14x14x14cm)
- Materials: PLA plastic and ABS plastic or tough recyclable or compostable plastic
- Layer Thickness: 0.2mm
- Filament Cartridge: One Cartridge prints 13 to 14 mid-sized creations
The Cube 2 will also come with a one-year-warranty. I did some checking around, and the cheapest I could find this printer for, from any retailer online, was $849, which is still an awesome deal. Newegg.com will be offering this incredible price from now until Monday, August 25th. Please note that this is considered a ‘final sale’ so there are no returns, exchanges, or replacements permitted, and only the blue color is available at this price.
Let us know what you think about this deal, and whether you have taken this opportunity to purchase this machine, in the Cube 2 forum thread on 3DPB.com.
