What Is Cubify?

I know exactly what Cubify is. But I need to shut my trap for now. What I can do as a blogger is quote from the 3D Systems press release:

“3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD) announced today that its Cubify.com 3D @home create-and-make online experience will go live in a beta release January 10, 2012. The company plans to unveil Cubify.com at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 10th–13th 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the exclusive 3D @Home section.

The press release goes on to explain a little more about Cubify.

“Cubify.com combines coloring book simplicity with cloud gaming excitement to deliver a vivid 3D create-and-make experience through a fully integrated, fluid interface. With intuitive 3D apps, rich 3D printable content libraries of games, puzzles and collections, Cubify.com turns any mobile device, tablet or Kinect® into a powerful, digital canvas that unleashes creativity and brings ideas to life in 3D. Compelling content creation, capture and customization apps make it simple and fun to personalize creations and Cubify them at home on a Cube™ 3D printer or have them Cubified using our online 3D printing service. Now everyone can unleash their creativity and earn money by marketing their own 3D creations or by developing new apps for Cubify.com.”

Yes, you read that right. A Cube 3D printer. The press release continues.

The company will showcase its new Cube™ 3D consumer printer and make available 3D collection libraries as downloads. 3D Systems calls on all aspiring 3D app developers and designers to become part of its groundbreaking Cubify.com community.

To see what the Cube 3D Printer looks like take a look at this video:

I’m excited as hell. Nervous too. Looks like the “shit hit fan” weekends that my team here in India and I have been spending working in office are finally coming to an end. 😉


  • That looks like fun

  • thermistor

    This is an UP! printer (pp3dp.com), which has been around for almost two years.

  • good stuff Deelip. goooooood stuff.

    The video tells me two things: (1) I can now make Croc knockoffs and (2) the printer makes them in about three seconds. I can see why Burhop and Josh M are eager to get one. 

    (Credit thermistor): The price of the UP! printer is $2,700.

    Croc knockoffs – I knew there was a divine purpose behind the maker revolution 😉

    This is cool stuff, Deelip.  I’m guessing we’ll look back on this one day and same something like, “I remember when 3D printers first made it into the consumer market…”

    Good luck, hope it works.

  • 3D printers have been around for a while, but access to them has been expensive, through a 3d printing company.  Cubify will open 3D printing capabilities to anyone who wants to create.  I hope the cost is reasonable.

  • Sounds great and now i am waiting for this,

  • Great works 😉
