    “A 3D printer that I don’t need to build! WOW!” Thought I, “I’ll go check that out!”
    The website said: “3D PRINTER! 1,299 bucks!”
    “Haha” I replied, “No really, how much?”
    “1,299″
    “….good luck with that. BAI!”

    @Farle:
    Its design is about the complexity of an inkjet printer, an extra degree of movement notwithstanding. For a rather long time already you can get an inkjet printer for free with a computer purchase, and even as a standalone product an inkjet is not too expensive.

    Cube guys need to figure out how to package nicely and sell the ABS string ’cause there won’t be much profit left in the business of selling 3D printers really soon. In fact, I think they understand it full well themselves – a casual surf through their site shows that they are more inclined to sell 3D models than the actual printers. Took me awhile to find the printer (although maybe I’m especially slow today) and it’s not even in the Store, although it now appears to be shipping. I’ve been there some time ago and they were just letting you to pre-order.

    So, yeah, I don’t think they plan on selling too many of those, and therefore $1299 vs. $499 would not have made much of a difference. I personally have no idea what is the most sensible price point for a consumer-grade 3D printer. I’m actually building one myself and I think I’ll be out of approx. $200 max – but that’s because I’m using plenty of spare materials from other projects, mostly CNC. But then, I’m unable to benefit from economy of scale …

    Anyhow, it’s all a moot point because in a few years Dell will be giving those away with a purchase of a new PC :)

    If it works well, that’s not a horrible price tag.

    3D printers are still very expensive. But they are getting cheaper. The first dot matrix printers sold for around $3000 of 1970′s money. Even inkjet printers were very expensive when they first came out. Now ink jet printers often sell at below cost, because they mark up the ink so much to make up the difference.

    How long until we have 3D printers selling dirt cheap, but that only accept special manufacturer approved plastic string?

  4. Fuming Solder Says:

    Well, that’s just the thing: I don’t know if anyone would be able to mark ABS string up so much as to justify the printer cost, similar to what they do with ink. I guess we’ll see how creative the marketing will get but it could be substituted for HDPE and polyethylene seems to me a quintessence of *DIRT CHEAP*: landfills are filled with it out there and I’ve heard of dirt islands in the Pacific made mostly from it.

    Like I said in the previous comment, I think Cubify guys do realize that – their business model seems to be leaning towards selling 3D models and various services around them, not so much the printer or the consumables. I’m almost certain they don’t even sell the thermoplastic string.
