Right now, anyone can buy a 3D printer if you have deep enough pockets for both the printer and the materials. Or you can use a service like Shapeways, but it’s still not cheap. Cubify not only is offering a relatively cheap 3D printer ($1200), but a whole 3D printing community that will allow you to share and sell programs, apps, blueprints and printed items. Sort of like an Etsy for 3D printer people.
The company will also be showing off its Geomagic-powered Kinect-To-Print app which, like the company’s mobile or tablet apps, allows regular humans to create and print 3D objects with “coloring book simplicity,” albeit with a lot more flailing of the arms. An online library will be pre-populated with 3D printable content in the form of games, puzzles, and “collections” and will also serve as a marketing tool for your creations.
