With excellent print quality and a build volume of 180 x 180 x 180mm for the Standard MKII model and 180 x 280 x 180mm for the Cetus Extended model, the Cetus is the perfect choice for Educators, hobbyists or the casual maker.


We want everyone to enjoy the fun of 3D printing, let your ideas realized and shared in a simple and tangible way. However, most 3D printers on the market are difficult to use, unreliable and expensive. 3D printers tend to be ever more complicated, bulky and confusing. Therefore we made a printer for you and ourselves, the Cetus, a minimalist printer that delivers the joy of creating and building ideas.


As a truly essential system, the body is made of aluminum extrusions, and the machine is simplified into only six modules

  • 3 x axis modules (IKO linear bearings)
  • 1 x electronic module
  • 1 x print bed module
  • 1 x print head module

Small Size but a BIG Printing Volume

  • Extended Version printing volume: 180(W)x280(H)x180(D) mm/7″x11″x7″


Precise and fine quality prints without hassle

Quality Linear Rails

Self-lubricated | Maintenance Free | High Precision | Long Lifespan | Quiet

A Simple yet Effective Extruder with 3 Nozzle Options – 0.6mm strength, 0.4mm normal, and 0.2mm HD

NO Leveling Necessary for Users

The build plate is a 3mm aluminum plate, which ensures a perfectly flat build surface. It is fixed onto the linear guide directly, and there are no moving parts between the slider and the build plate. This ensures that the build surface is flat and parallel along the X-axis. The Y-axis is carefully calibrated in the factory, so users can start printing right out of the box, and there is no need to level the machine before getting to work!

Novel Build Surface

A special print bed surface coating is applied to guarantee a perfect print every time.
The surface sticks to PLA and has a high tolerance for nozzle height error.
Thanks to this surface coating, removing your prints from the surface is surprisingly easy and clean.
The coating itself is very durable and could last for a long time.

Software: Best of Both Worlds

The dedicated Cetus 3D-printing software features a straightforward interface, easy breakaway Smart Support, photo to lithopane, custom print material, and more! The software is also supported by Windows, Mac, and iOS. Furthermore, user can use third party slicing softwares such Simplify3D, Cura, Slic3r and etc. So that advanced user can fine tune their print to get the best quality. Gcode compatibility also means you can mod the machine to do things like laser engraving or other CNC type functions.

The Cetus MKII Standard model and the Cetus Extended model are both in stock at Octave Systems. All Cetus 3D printers purchased from Octave Systems come with an exclusive 6 month warranty – parts and labor.

New!! Octave Precision PLA Filament for 3D Printers

The Octave Precision PLA line is designed to produce better results, fewer clogs and less wasted filament than any other PLA available today. When your print job demands the best, reach for Octave Precision.

Superior Diameter Consistency

During production, laser measurement instruments constantly check filament diameter and roundness, ensuring no greater than 20 microns in variation. Your 3D printer’s hot end is going to be fed the amount of material it expects at all times, which means less discrepancy in layer height and depth, and smoother prints.


Intelligently Wound Spooling

Advanced robotics are employed to wind the filament onto each spool, perfectly placing each layer of filament side by side, one on top of the other. This results in tangle-free unwinding, an end to clogs caused by filament cross-binding while printing.


Remaining Filament Estimator

The side of the clear spool is marked to reveal the length of filament remaining in meters.
Take the guesswork out of gauging whether or not there is enough left to complete a print job.

Contaminant Free Purity

Produced in an atmospherically pure, temperature and humidity-controlled environment, airborne particulates cannot reach the filament as it is being made and unwanted moisture is not introduced into the process. Technicians clean the extrusion machinery after every run to guarantee each spool suffers no imperfections from material build-up. Octave Precision PLA begins its life as pure PLA and remains pure PLA after it becomes filament.

Single Spool Inspection

Every spool of Octave Precision PLA is inspected by a technician before it is packaged. If it doesn’t meet our quality-control checklist, it is discarded.

Moisture Free Packaging

After inspection, before it ever leaves the contaminant-free production area, Octave Precision PLA is vacuum sealed in plastic wrap with a desiccant to protect against condensation forming during shipping.

Copy Protection For Free on Vinpower Duplicators

Vinpower has enabled its entire range of optical disc duplicators with their exclusive copy protection feature for both DVD and Blu-ray* discs.

In a time when most companies want to give you less and charge more for it, Vinpower is doing the opposite and providing more for less. Previously, the Copylock software and capability to support Vinpower’s market leading DVD copy protected image files were optional add-ons, but now Vinpower will make it available for free on all new eligible duplicators. So if you purchase any Vinpower branded DVD duplicator, the Copylock copy protection software and capabilities will be included for free*!

In today’s savvy hi-tech world, consumers are often purchasing a single video and making copies for their friends which limit the overall sales. If you worked hard and put in a lot of effort and expense into creating your video project, you shouldn’t be restricted in the number of units you can sell because you can’t afford the high price of replicated copy protection. Instead, by using Vinpower Digital’s Copylock (CPS) technology, you can feel secure by adding FREE Copy Protection* with the OCP or EZ BD format** and OptoDisc manufactured media in less time and with no minimum or maximum quantities required.

Why should it cost you extra to protect what’s rightfully yours? Keep the savings in your pocket and increase your revenue by adding Vinpower’s free Copy Protection along with the superior OptoDisc manufactured media.

For more details about this product or any of Vinpower Digital’s range of hardware, software, and media offerings, visit the Octave website, or speak with our authorized Vinpower representative at 800-626-8539.

*In order to utilize the free copy protection, the user must use DVD or BD media with the OptoDisc MID code, contact Vinpower for a list of such media options.
**For Blu-ray copy protection, the duplicator must be enabled to produce BD copy protected discs, check with your sales associate to make certain before purchasing.

Copy Master III Duplicators with Plextor Burners

CMIII_c The Copy Master III with the latest Plextor SATA duplication grade DVD Burner reads and writes DVD/CD at blazing fast speed of 24X. The Plextor DVD burner has passed stringent testing procedures to ensure better compatibility with different media brands available today. It also incorporates a new improved chassis design to tremendously reduce noise and greatly improve writing quality. Also, with Industrial tray gears & pulleys, the Plextor burner provides a more stable disc loading tray for a longer life cycle.

With the Plextor drives, they may cost slightly more initially, but they are a much better value in the long run…

When you contemplate whether something is a better deal because the initial cost is cheaper than the competition, to understand the true cost of ownership, you need to take into account the full cost over the lifespan of the product, including durability, reliability, and longevity, to get a full picture.

For example, if we compare the high quality duplication grade Plextor PX-891SAF CD/DVD recorder drive with another common CD/DVD recorder drive that offers a slightly lower cost. In this scenario, the alternative drive is $5 cheaper than the PX-891SAF, however, the alternative drive lasts only 6 months at most under the heavy duplication production, while the PX-891SAF lasts at least 12 ~ 15 months under the same production load. That means that you would have to purchase 2 ~ 3 replacements of the alternative drive over the lifetime of a single Plextor PX-891SAF drive. So that $5 initial savings is not only wiped out, but you end up paying nearly 2 times more for the alternative drive(s) compared to the PX-891SAF over the lifespan of the drives.

In this scenario, I only looked at the true hard dollar costs of ownership, there’s also the issue that the PX-891SAF offers superior quality and less rejects than the competition. That’s another cost that should be counted when determining the overall cost of ownership. Optical drives may not be very expensive and therefore you may not think it’s worth doing a cost projection for them, however, when you consider the number of times you have to replace your drives, then you’ll quickly realize how those savings can add up.

Vinpower is now offering the PX-891SAF – ROBOT recorder drive

Vinpower is happy to announce that the PX-891SAF – ROBOT is now available.


Vinpower Digital, a recognized global manufacturer and distributor of digital duplication equipment and accessories, has received the prestigious Plextor PX-891SAF ROBOT Optical Disc Drives (ODD’s) and is the exclusive worldwide supplier with drives already in stock in select markets.

The Plextor PX-891SAF – ROBOT drive boasts many advantages to the standard half height burner drives in the following ways:

Autoloader Compatible:
• The Disc loading tray and firmware are designed specifically for automated robotic disc publishing hardware with consistent tray extension.
Better Burning Quality:
• Secure Media Speed Stability – Ensures that media duplication speed does not exceed encoded maximum rates to provide better burning control and virtually eliminates bad burns.
• Enhanced Recording Stabilization Control – Ensures all drives in a single duplication environment burn uniformly to avoid disproportionate speed fluctuations, which lead either to failed discs or less compatible completed discs.
• Stable Recording Control – The drives have an extensive database of media specs and are better able to communicate and convey these details while burning the disc(s) at ultimate speed.
Greater Compatibility with blank media and media players:
• Stable burning throughout – Provides consistent and reliable burning of any file type for the duration of the duplication progress to ensure the recorded media has far greater reliability of playback or that the discs will successfully copy to begin with.
• Archival Burning Capability – Able to burn virtually all makes of specialty archival media, including the 1000 year M-Disc brand.
• Enhanced CD-R Duplication – Limits potential distortion in CD-R audio duplication Drives
Lasts Longer:
• Built using sturdier components – Compared to alternative drives, this model was built using the true Japanese design and parts lists for a stronger and more reliable system.
• Less Wear and Tear – since there are fewer bad burns, the system is able to complete its jobs in less burns meaning a prolonged life for the drives themselves due to less use
• Industrial tray gears & pulleys – provides a more stable disc loading tray for a longer life cycle (1 cycle equals 1 tray extend from and then return into the drive)
• Enhanced Error Reporting – Provides greater details as to the cause of any potential duplication failure during the Lead-In

The Plextor PX-891SAF – ROBOT CD/DVD writer drive is immediately available and can be shipped anywhere in the world. Contact Octave Systems, Inc. for more details.

Vinpower’s Disc Duplicators can accommodate up to 8TB HDD’s

All of Vinpower’s Optical Disc Duplicators can accommodate the largest available 8TB HDD’s


The fact that an 8TB hard drive exists is quite amazing, given that magnitude of the content that could be stored on that drive. So the fact that all of Vinpower’s optical disc duplicators, manual towers and autoloaders, can utilize the 8TB HDD to store projects/jobs, is also an impressive feat. It’s also fair to think, why would anyone need such a large HDD inside a duplicator.

When you think about the fact that content is getting larger and larger, for instance, UHD/4K content could be over 100GB per disc, then it’s easy to see how a user would need a much greater amount of space to store each project for future duplication jobs. Couple that with Vinpower’s new Blu-ray Copy Protection (BCP) feature, where the protected files would need to reside on the HDD to make additional protected copies without requiring additional licenses, and the amount of space needed could add up quickly.
Regardless of whether you’ll need an 8TB HDD for your duplicator or not, the key is that Vinpower strives to stay ahead of the curve and is constantly expanding the boundaries of what’s possible for our duplication hardware.
