The Cubibot Kickstarter campaign is finally here! At last year’s Inside 3D Printing San Diego expo, we first had a chance to see the high-quality desktop Cubibot 3D printer. The affordable Cubibot launched on Kickstarter this morning. It reached its initial crowdfunding goal of $50,000 just two minutes after going live and kept going, raising more than double that original goal in less than twenty minutes – clearly, people have been anxiously waiting for the printer to become available.
Sina Noorazar, the CDO for Cubibot LLC, said, “We’ve been developing and tweaking our Cubibot 3D printer over the past couple of years, and have been thrilled at the reaction Cubibot has been receiving at industry events, including at last week’s TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco. And now we’re excited to make easy, affordable and high-quality 3D printing available to consumers everywhere via the launch of our Kickstarter campaign.”
According to the campaign page, “Cubibot is an affordable, user-friendly, high-quality 3D printer with a compact and dynamic design made to fit your lifestyle. Cubibot balances functionality and ease of use without compromising features. Matching the performance and quality of expensive, professional 3D printers at an affordable cost, Cubibot enables you to realize all your imaginations!”
The desktop 3D printer is available in both white and black, and also comes with interchangeable Cubisides in bright colors, like blue and pink, to match your mood or decor – it’s small enough to fit on a counter top.
Inside its modern design is a powerful, cloud-based 3D printer – the user-friendly Cubibot is packed with great features, and is designed for both hobbyists and professionals, as well as those new to 3D printing. All of its components were designed from scratch, with accuracy and efficiency in mind.
The plug and print Cubibot 3D printer measures 10″ x 10″ x 10″, with a 5″ x 5″ x 5″ print volume and a print speed of up to 80 mm per second. It has a specially-designed ventilation system with replaceable HEPA filters, and a smart status notification will let you know what the printer is doing at any given moment; for example, blue means that the printer is connecting to WiFi, while orange means that you need to add more filament. The printer also has a fully automated smart self-leveling build platform, and its heated print bed and high-temperature nozzle allow it to handle multiple materials.
Other Cubibot specs include:
- Prints in PLA, specialty PLA, ABS, Nylon, and more
- Cloud printing capabilities with cloud-side slicing engine
- Easily accessible web-based platform
- Desktop apps for Windows, Mac and Linux
- Mobile apps for Android and iOS
“Our Cubibot 3D printer represents a giant leap forward in affordable, plug-and-play 3D printing at a price point that anyone can afford. And with easy set-up and configuration, those with no prior 3D printing experience can be creating their first 3D prints in no time at all,” said Aria Noorazar, Cubibot LLC CTO. “The features-for-price ratio is unlike anything the industry has seen to date, and the quality of our Cubibot prints need to be seen to be believed.”
The Cubibot 3D printer is now available for pre-order through its Kickstarter campaign – initial units will be shipping worldwide in the first quarter of 2018. While all of the super early bird rewards of $199 and the early bird rewards of $249 are already gone, there are still plenty of rewards left – $299, which is still a significant discount off the retail price, will get you the printer, two Cubi spools, and two filters.
