      Or for 300 more you can get a pre-built Makerbot that has 2 colours, a larger print bed and works infinitely better, without the inherent lock-in to the cubify system that 3d-systems is hoping to suck^z^z^z^z convince people to go to.

      “works infinitely better”? You can argue the other points, but the Cube hasn’t even been released, so to say that… well, you’re making stuff up at this point until the product has been tested.

      Do not waste your money on this product! I recently purchased this item and it worked well for the first three prints. Afterwords the machine ceased to heat up. After numerous runarounds from Andrew Peterson of their Customer Support he finally just emailed to buy a new one. If you purchase and item with cartridges for over $1700 you would expect it to either to what it’s supposed to do or have it replaced.

      Stay clear of Cubify!
