A community of users is invaluable. This was illustrated by the fact that 3dFan, in a comment, pointed to a video produced by 3D Systems that demonstrates how to use a new Calibration Procedure made available in the 1,08b firmware update.
The link to the video is:
It is my understanding that not all Cube3 owners will need to calibrate their printers. Recently produced printers do not have the issue of having a difference in printjet height. So, it would be wise to contact support if you are having gap issues to see if the calibration procedure described in the video applies to your situation.
It tuned out that mine did benefit by following the directions in the video.
But, the thing I am waiting for that should be the biggest boost for Cube3 owners is the release of upgraded filament from the Village Plastics factory that 3D Systems purchased last year that is supposed to be optimized for use in Cube3 cartridges.

But, it also may be that we could see new types of materials in the future. In this press release 3D Systems talks about adding nylon to the CubePro capabilities.
They also have a filament called HIPS, which easily dissolves in an orange peel extract cleaner.
Could it migrate to the Cube3? Who knows. But, it's an intriquing thought.
Expanded Filament Facility
3D Systems continues to expand their capabilities to support the consumer user by bringing quality control of expendables in-house.
As soon as I know that the new filament is in the pipeline, I will do my best to test it immediately.
