Coca-Cola and 3D printer manufacturer 3D Systems have debuted the Ekocycle Cube 3D printer. Based on the company's Cube 3D printer, the new device uses specially-formulated spools of raw material that use 25 percent post-consumer recycled materials unique to this printer line.
The printer can form materials in a 6 x 6 x 6-inch cube, with a 70-micron resolution. Filament will be available for an unspecified cost in black, white, red, and "natural" colors. Cubify offers customers a $5 credit for any consumed cartridges returned after user.
The printer is expected to ship before the end of the year for $1,200, and include a free collection of 25 designs for fashion, music, and technology accessories.
