3D Systems has acquired U.K.-based 3D printer maker botObjects and plans to launch the CubePro C, a desktop, full-color 3D printer that incorporates botObjects’ PlasticJet Printing (PJP) technology and ProDesk3D printer. The new printer is capable of printing to 25-micron layers at deposition speeds ranging to 175 mm/sec. using PLA and ABS print materials, and PVA support material.

According to 3D Systems, the company plans to fulfill all backorders for the ProDesk3D as it concurrently transitions to the new CubePro C line. Until it expands its manufacturing capacity, the CubePro C will be available in a limited release, with plans to expand distribution later this year.
