SOLD (UK) 3D Systems CUBE 3D printer
« on: July 21, 2015, 09:55:18 am »
Saved from the skip, looks like the heating element has failed (or the inline thermal fuse strapped to the extruder...)

http://uk.farnell.com/3d-systems/381000/cube-3d-printer-2g-silver-uk-plug/dp/2364814

I've powered it up, smooth movement in Z, Y and Z. Extruder doesn't heat up and their is some old filament stuck in it. The box contains the printer, PSU, and 2 spools of ABS filament. There is no guide tube from filament spool to extruder, but that doesn't seem like a game-changer. There is also no memory stick, but i guess any old USB stick will work, but it has wifi and a USB host connection anyway.

SOLD

Well thank you, Ian, I'll think it over. I've three problems with the thing:

 - Can't use generic filament, need to buy it from 3D Systems (or hack but the company will likely patch via wifi, goddamn cloud!)
 - Don't know what heating element is used
 - The GBP is strong these days

But it's still a tempting offer. I'll come back to you. If you made it 200 € it'd be a nobrainer.

Still for sale if anybody else wants to step in, I need to get things moved quick because I just don't have the space to have them hanging around.

Just think of us in ZA. I just ordered some springs from the UK. 9p for a spring and 100GBP shipping. Can't get them locally so the UK supplier it is. They were also rather surprised at the courier costs, but I need them at least before mid August, not December.

I paid £72 to send a single sheet of A4 to Saudi, was supposed to be a 2 day service but took a week. Well done Fedex, at least they gave me my money back quicker than it took them to deliver the bloody letter!

Thank you, Ian.
May be I can document the repair and post it here on eevblog for others to see, what it takes.
It will be interesting to see, if parts are available from 3D Systems.
I am looking forward to this repair and usage of the printer.

As I mentioned, there is a hack that, depending on software version, enables you to use any filament with the printer. Mind the comments.

If that fails, people have used parts from a raprap rambo (including a new extruder) with the CUBE 3D.

Good luck! If I had the time and money, I had done it.

I will join you on that request.
