ROCK HILL, S.C., Jan. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced its popular home 3D printer, the Cube®, won the coveted KAPi Kids at Play Award at CES 2013.

The second generation of its award winning Cube 3D Printer was launched at CES and boasts faster printability, additional print modes and greater materials selection, including recyclable ABS plastic and compostable PLA and more colors like glow-in-the dark blue and green. The Cube meets all IEC 60950 Printer Safety Requirements making it the only consumer 3D printer that is safe for at-home use by adults and children alike.




This year's KAPi Award winners were selected from a pool of 712 apps, video games, toys and other commercial digital products designed for children, as well as individuals who have made their mark in the world of children's tech.

"We always learn so much from the KAPi juror discussion," said Warren Buckleitner, editor of Children's Technology Review. "Each category had many possible winners; at the end of the day we had to choose just one that raised the bar over last year."
