3D Systems has launched the Ekocycle Cube which uses 25 per cent recycled material filament and a lot of branding nous

3D Systems has announced its latest desktop 3D printer, the Ekocycle Cube, more interesting however is the heavyweight marketing tie-up with mega-brand Coca-Cola and sometime pop star William Adams.

Whether it includes the dual-extruder is unclear as it looks likely to cost $1,199, a few rolls of filament cheaper than the Cube 3.
