Anycubic touts its latest product event as a revolution in multi-color 3D printing. The OEM has partnered with PANTONE to present new filaments in exclusive "true-to-life" shades, up to 8 of which can be fed to a new Kobra 3 printer in a "seamless, hassle-free" way that also integrates a new auto-drying feature.

Anycubic's new Color Engine Pro is touted to deliver "a whole new level of convenience and reliability" by supporting the storage and linkage of 2 boxes to the same printer, giving it access to as many as 8 filaments at once.

It integrates a new "intelligent side-drying" feature for said filaments (apparently by popular request) to keep them in optimal condition as they emerged. With its quad parallel discharge tubes, it is also backed to enable quick and easy switching between different colors, identified by the new accessory's RFID sensor - if they come direct from Anycubic, that is.

The OEM's filament range is to be augmented with new "industry-certified" options, including Interstellar Violet, Spring Leaf, Tropical Turquoise, and PANTONE's 2024 Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz. Anycubic asserts that they will result in more realistic, unique, yet natural-looking, prints for its customers in the future.

Those users may also be able to showcase, share and help others with prints thanks to the OEM's new Makeronline community forum. Finally, Anycubic's "Colorful" event introduces the latest addition to its Kobra series. 

The OEM has indicated that it is to be made available as the vanilla 3 and "enhanced" 3 Combo from April 22, 2024, with pricing and availability to be revealed on that date. In the meantime, the Kobra 2 Pro is discounted from its $399.99 list price to $259.99 on Amazon at the moment.
