Software Description: All CubeX 3D Printers include complimentary conversion software. This application converts your 3D model into layered slices (G-code), ready for printing on your machine. Other features and uses of CubeX Software include:

  • Clear, familiar and easy to use interface
  • Scaling, rotation and movement of parts on a simulated print bed
  • Proven default settings for all CubeX 3D printers
  • Ability to create custom profiles as needed
  • Imperial / metric conversion available
  • Combined part and toolpath viewer
  • Built-in STL file verification
  • Profiles for multiple material / support material
  • Software upgrades can be downloaded from the CubeX Technical Resources hub.
