Anycubic, a Chinese producer of desktop 3D printers, has unveiled its latest Kobra 3 Combo multi-color 3D printer, alongside the debut of the Anycubic Color Engine Pro (ACE Pro). This release also includes a host of corresponding upgrades to the Anycubic App and Slicer, together with the live Anycubic community Makeronline. With significant firmware upgrades and a collaboration with PANTONE, multi-color printing becomes even more accessible.

Anycubic Color Engine Pro

The Anycubic Color Engine Pro (ACE Pro) supports simultaneous printing with two linked boxes – accommodating up to eight colors at once. With the added feature of RFID recognition for Anycubic filaments, it ensures seamless printing quality. Recognizing the detrimental effects of moisture on print quality, ACE Pro integrates an active drying function – distinguishing itself as the only product on the market to combine active drying with multi-color printing capabilities. Its intelligent side-drying feature maintains filament dryness even during extended print sessions that last up to 24 hours.

A parallel connection of four discharge tubes makes switching between colors easy, and with its intelligent color change function, waste is minimized.

Exclusive PANTONE filmant

Anycubic’s collaboration with PANTONE has introduced the first-ever 3D printing industry-certified consumable colors, including Peach Fuzz, Interstellar Violet, Tropical Turquoise, and Spring Leaf.

Anycubic Kobra 3

The introduction of the Anycubic Kobra 3 builds on the foundation of its predecessor, the Anycubic Kobra 2 series, with single-color regular printing speeds of up to 600mm/minute and a print volume of 250x250x260mm. Equipped with standard features like accelerometers, vibration compensators, and flow control mechanisms, the Kobra 3 ensures that your prints maintain high quality at high speeds.

Beneath its sleek exterior, the Kobra 3 runs on the fully optimized firmware Kobra OS. This firmware boasts enhanced computing power and fast motor response – allowing for precise movements and filament extrusions. Thanks to its built-in accelerometer module, it can detect resonance frequencies of the X/Y axis – making intelligent adjustments to motion control to diminish pesky artifacts like banding and ringing.

Anycubic app and slicer

The Anycubic App and Slicer offer comprehensive features tailored for coloring, modifying, and slicing multi-color models. They facilitate seamless remote control and monitoring – enabling users to manage their 3D printers from various devices, including computers and smartphones. By configuring an external camera, users can monitor the printing progress in real time and conduct live video surveillance. Additionally, the upcoming LAN mode support in the Anycubic Slicer promises even greater convenience and privacy for users.


Anycubic’s new community platform, Makeronline, serves as a hub for over a thousand 3D model designers. Makeronline also hosts competitions – offering participants the chance to win creation bonuses and exclusive community points.
