Most of the attention in this area has gone to MakerBot's Replicator, but Cubify, a division of 3D Systems recently came out with its $1,300 Cube personal 3D printer, a system designed to bring the excitement of the hot technology home.
Users can design their own 3D models, or can choose from an library of existing designs. And, if a design is too big to print on the Cube, Cubify will print it for you. For a fee, of course.
