Add subtitles/CC. , hello there this is Scott from hobby projects I dot com. This is our viewer 3d Systems cube X 3d printer, specifically the duo that has to print ads it’s been a long time since I’ve.
The body, once I better check in at the low end up absence printer market today with the WF. This is a work force printer which means that it’s got, a scanner can copy I does faxing as well. In its a pretty low end a printer but it has a low and price about ninety nine, dollars at the time that I’m recording this a very affordable. If you don’t count the XO I’m bored has foreign cartridges are all separate but, printer review site I to replace all of them it’s about sixty to seventy dollars to replace the. Foreign cartridges I think you have to buy the color ones together, out you can buy the black cartridges separately I so if you do the math on. That you’re looking at, your one-and-a-half ink replacement equals eight new printer so perhaps I.
When they come out the new one next year, I did buy the new printer and give this one away or something because it’s going. To cost you about the same, printer review site I so it doesn’t make much sense but that’s how they subsidize these printers. So, keep all that in mind it’s got a flatbed scanner as well as a document feed. Scanner will show you, how fast does the skins admit this is not a duplexing thing so you’re gonna. Have to put the documents in one way and put them over, I to get the other side if you want to do that you have to pay a little bit. More, printer review site on basic keypad here for making copies in sending faxes you have to plug it.
Into a phone line to send faxes out up I do believe you can fax to your computer, to this so. I there is a way to get it a fact I’ve your computer without having to, I have a fax modem which nervous have anymore or printing something out you. Can kinda send it directly through their, are you also have the paper tray on the back here you can use index cards a. Regular paper, E-z Ink Compatible Ink Cartridge Replacement for Brother LC-103XL High Yield (4 Black, 2 Cyan, 2 Magenta, 2 Yellow) 10 Pack pop it in the back there and then you can extend this area out. I’d to keep the paper from flying at the machine when things are printing so, pretty basic transportation so what we’re gonna do eyes can just walk you. Through the print speed, INS can speed and then if you have questions ask them in the comments below.
So let’s take a look first, at printing speed. A quick break here to see how this comes out this is a, printer review site pretty involved little PDF document I got the other day. And at this is not a taxing thing per se for most printers but, I it is a lot the graphics and color to principle see how fast this comes out. So I just sent to the printer and looks like, starting to print now where the. Things that happens when you’ve got a document like this is that, does take some time occasionally for it to render so it might start running. Slower, printer review site on the outset that it might I towards the end it’s not a limitation up the.
Printing hardware per se, but it is a limitation up maybe the amount of memory where the processor on. Board the printers are seeing how this document is pretty a little bit, slower to start and now that it’s got everything rendered. I it’s going to come out a little bit faster to get a sense that the speed, setting the print like a. Black-on-white document or something like that it should come out I fairly, printer review site nice I’m not expecting much at this is the hundred dollar printer. Up but I am expectancy is at least this image I will closely match what we had, on the screen here and it looks as though. It does pretty much look very similar to what we printed from the Mac you’re, still looks good at something decent.
And again it’s not going to be something that knock your socks off per se but it, is going to give you basic transportation especially if you don’t. Need anything all that fancy, printer review site and of course you can turn up the other quality settings if you want to try to.
Get a little bit better print never gonna max LASEK while quality but it, will. I think be good enough for I handing out at a presentation or something like that, even though it’s an inexpensive printer it does have the AirPrint capability. Built in Iowa St can also use Google Cloud Print that requires a little bit, more configuration. A bit on the iPad side is selected printer works on an iPhone this way also, printer review site it’ll show up on your network automatically hit print and your.
Document most the time will pop right out, and make us can you have a choice of course you can use the auto document. Feeder here or you can, a place a document on the flatbed a wedding to keep in mind that most. Scanners at I’ve used have often had to align the in the document to the left, hand side the printer this one wants you to align. On the right hand side i the reason is that the auto document feeder, printer review site ice reads the skin from this spot here so. What you where you normally would have is like a little buffer area here but, this one doesn’t have that it is but lines to the right with your photos are. Your, single sheet things you want to scan your be I just fine that way now to do a.
Auto document feeder is put the I document on the, I top up the scanner here in a way things you can do on Mac and Windows of. Course is to install, printer review site Epson scanning software to find the up the scanner automatically with you have. A plugin the USB over wifi, up on the Mac also will let you use Apple’s built-in scanning utility. Without any drivers at all you this kind of, ago in and I select the image capture app. It will show up as a I a scanner on your network seconds click this here, and it’s going to connect to the skin or wirelessly and in a second we should be. Able to, printer review site I do our quick scan hear me tell it to I want it does it’s little preview here to.
Switch to the auto document feeder so we can get a sense as to how fast, the scanner will be on this way for that to finish up here for one second. Is not to be a terribly fast scanner this is again the low end of the market, so. Are you not gonna get you know something that you we get out at like one of those, puget the skin snaps or something but it will be. I decent enough so we’re just gonna go ahead and scan to a PDF here, printer review site and I am going to click the Scan button now and let’s see. How fast the device scans know it’s doing now is moving that, a skinhead all the way over to the edge. And that is rather slow it’s so I don’t think you’re going to be doing a lot of, high speed skating on here but.
You can get something scanned and sent out the somebody if you need to, that is the S&W at. It is only 99 bucks doesn’t do all that much for that, printer review site price of course but. I is good basic transportation but I would caution you, but when you’re looking at this price to think about the in cost overtime and. Whether or not, you can reuse this enough to really justify what you’re gonna have to invest. In consumables over time because right now these printers to the, the less you’ll use them the more Inc it uses because. It’s got a cannery prime the pump in everything and you end up using a lotta, printer review site into doesn’t end up on the paper so if you doing occasional Prince you know I.
Would look at maybe something in the laser sight if things especially Pinoy, the color. Are there some very inexpensive multifunction, laser printers out there that are a little bit more kind to people that. Don’t print on them all the time because, I these things do suck down a lot Inc especially when you have to clean them. And as we saw the cost of replacing the ink I will be, printer review site exceeding the cost the printer after just one and a half swaps or so. Those in cartridges this is Lance I been thanks for watching
Printer review site
Been this excited that a new tool, save the lives up to my expectations as the making of this video. The single color cube X is $, printer review site duo is $. Trio is $, the things that initially attracted me to the cube X where the specifications. Particularly the, I., inch print volume the finest layer height appoint one millimeter and XY. Tolerance, printer review site twenty-millimeter is also pretty good you can use either plae.
Or ABS plastic in a wide variety of colors when you open the box you’ll find, a setup poster. Toolkit glue jetway for red and white plae cartridges, USB Drive and the QX self the first thing I noticed for the track links. The were holding up the wiring were popped out I don’t think this is a big, deal. The links were broken they just needed to be popped back into place, printer review site coming with zip ties and moving the packing material went easily. Next you need to install the print material you start by clicking the, on-screen menu. And the key backs will guide you through I do the screw, pull that out tremendously and install it’s all pretty easy.
The next part of set up this to check the level of the print service, and set the sea gap the level function moves print head around the corners on. The surface to use as a guide, printer review site there are three screws to adjust to ensure the print head sets in a. Consistent height, across the surface I think to talk it was first have an Alan driver that. That’s a little screws, but to the three drivers were exactly the same so I guess somebody messed my. Cat, when you first open the key back software. It’ll ask you how many printhead you have had whatever materially have, printer review site after activating your cube X you can download a set a free models.
I picked up on to start with full size is a very long print, adults offer enables you to position the model on the print surface. Scale at any size that will fit skill and a half, is a good first test click the Build button and set the parameters of the. Bills, the bill dialogue has all the options for quality and support I. I like to Houston self Anna, printer review site layer hi click building this offer will generate a built-in show you how. Much material you’re going to use and how long the build will take, save the print file to your USB Drive and take it to the cube X. The key back story the print file from the USB Drive, the one that was included in my kid was less than reliable.
After several prints the failed this file readers, I decided to format my own USB Drive is fat. And I haven’t had a problem sense, printer review site you need to apply clue to the print surface to ensure that the model will. Move, getting the glue right can be touchy if you have too much. This too wet sometimes the bottom layers will slide too little, or to dry and it will stick over the long run prints are initiated from the. QX touchscreen, plug in your USB Drive test for an option. Selector file the key back so he have to print heads and start to build, printer review site I love watching this thing work I spent hours watching a bill layer by layer.
I’ll make you say here that long so of fast forward into bed, when the cube X completes a bill. The print surface easy to remove it soaking in warm water will help release, the glue. The kit provides a scraper for you it would be nice if that’s great for with, stainless steel cuz mines re-arrested. Quality of the print is nice nice I doped, printer review site the pictures a princess scene led me to believe that the cube axis capable of. The nicer finish, according to the documentation the 0.1 millimeter.
Layer height will produce the highest quality model the one on the left is, millimeter. The only change on the right is 0.1 millimeter, layer height I think I like the 0.25 better. The QX purchase includes a license for cuba fly invent, printer review site this 3d design software is relatively easy to use. The basic idea is to pick up lane draw one or more to the sketches, and then use that sketches the outline to cut were at material each operation.
Your performance recorded analyst, you go back to list edit what you’ve done and then regenerate model. I really like the way that works I saw few quirky things, sometimes the rendering strikes me as a bit of overall I like the software. Have been able to quickly create two shapes and the models that I want, printer review site minor visuals aside I have seen some more serious issues. Like you back seems to have trouble with larger parts the walls are the Sprint, should be vertical. It looks like the prince had drifted progressively at a place, I’ve also had some problems with the ABS print cartridge. At some point the plastic inside became on spools, I got several errors relating to film a flow before I realized material stock.
With no longer plot on the cartridge I cracked it open, printer review site material popped out and now I have a hundred-dollar bird’s nest. Support has been responsive and so i’m hopeful that these issues will be, resolved. My expectations for the key backs were probably too high, the quality and aesthetics aren’t as nice as some other pictures led me to. Believe, have several 3d printers on the market the cube X is said to be the one that. Just works out of the box, printer review site I didn’t find this to be the case something additionally pretty badly. Can often be fixed by changing the orientation their height part density, rafting and support if you’re willing to invest the time and learn what works.
Then the cube X can still be a good tool, for additional information and high-resolution pictures parts I built. On the backs, this at WWW dot how the projects I dot com
