Known as Cubify, this latest 3D printer is unlike other similar inventions because it has been created to help consumers design, build and profit from their own ideas. Set to be launched next month, the new device can print objects off in the same way a document is printed off by an ordinary printer.
Although this technology is in its infancy it has definitely advanced massively in recent years. If this device takes off it could mean that people find templates for anything they need on the internet, send it to their printer and have a new item within their home in moments, such as chairs and tables to beds and lamps, in the near future.
Cubify hopes to push forward the social side of its new invention suggesting that users could search for, find and purchase the designs of other consumers just like using Amazon for electronics or using ebay for furniture.
Cubify said: “We believe a new art form is emerging where all things in 3D will merge. New tools, which enable digital creation, such as 3D scanning, 3D printing and countless others, are enabling future artists to express themselves in 3D like never before. We call them Cubify Artists and Cubify is their playground to create, monetise and share their ideas with others.”
