3D printing has officially landed in Australia, with Officeworks now offering the 3D Systems Cube 3D, both online and in 21 brick-and-mortar store locations.
The Cube 3D is a smaller household model, retailing for US$1299 overseas, which prints in both single-colour PLA and ABS plastics in a resolution of 200 microns (0.2 millimetres) up to a size of 140 millimetres cubed.
"The Cube printer is a 3D printer for everyone — it's easy to use, and helps you turn your big ideas into tangible objects you can hold," said Officeworks Technology Business Manager Toby Watson. "Whether it's to bring to life your design course work, show concepts to clients, or create something unique for fun, Cube 3D Printers have you covered."
Officeworks will be selling the printers for AU$1499, and refill cartridges of both materials for AU$60 — they retail for AU$50 in the US. You can find them on the Officeworks website in the printers section.
