Hi slim6072 we don't know yet hopefully soon but it looks like any of the current 3D desktop printers should do allowing for software compatability

I am looking at the Cube

5.5 x 5.5 x 5.5

I recommend an Ultimaker! I use one and it is great. Makerbot Replicator 2 is good as well but after doing some research I felt like the Ultimaker was better, but honestly I would like to try the Replicator 2 one day. Both printers are capable of getting great prints.

The Makerbot Replicator didn't get great reviews on here. After reading the problems DJ had with Makerbot and the Replicator I wouldn't even consider one personally.

The Cube should be OK since DJ mentioned it in the presentation. He uses a CubeX. The Cube should be stocked by Staples soon, if it isn't already.

Hi Feroze I think compatibility with ARC will be the most important thing but maybe not I'm only guessing

Any 3D printer should work with ARC... All 3D printers accept .stl files and I suppose ARC will be providing the stl files for you. Then use your own slicing software to send it to the printer.

In my research I would not get the Cube, mainly because your limited to buying cartridges only from 3D systems, and they are almost double what you get otherwise. I also heard the quality is not that great on the Cube. As far as I can tell it does not have a fan, and with PLA a fan helps a lot! Also does not have a heated bed, not really necessary for PLA though, but it is nice.

Honestly if you can afford it, the Ultimaker is a great 3D printer but a bit expensive. Printrbot 3D printers are a great value, but the support is not so good.
