3D Systems targets families with sub-$1,000 3D printer

 Announced at CES today, the new sub-US$1,000 unit undercuts the $1,299 price of last year's Cube 2, while also upping maximum creation size and adding a new mobile app for more convenient printing.
The Cube 3 is slightly larger than its predecessor, measuring 13.3 x 13.3 x 11 in (33.5 x 33.8 x 28 cm) and weighing 17 lb (7.7 kg). The latest version also has the ability to print two materials and two colors at the same time. Using recyclable ABS and compostable PLA plastic available in a range of over 20 colors, dual jets allow for mix-and-match dual color and dual material objects.
