Just went through all this on a donated machine, you'll find Mac and windows software for the 2nd gen printer here, that still surprisingly works fine on Mac 10.13.6 High Sierra:

Connection by adhoc wifi also worked after giving my Mac a couple of minutes to connect.

Connection by USB cable is only for updating firmware.

This manual is quite helpful:

Now onto crap hacking / frankencubing this thing.

I am trying to download Cube 3d printer 2nd generation for Mac using a link that 3D systems gave me.  The link is invalid.
Also, USB connection from a windows machine to cube is not recognized.
Downloaded a project to flash drive - cube does not recognize it.
I am new to using the printer, but our organization has had it since 2014 but the person using it before has left.  Having all kinds of other issues and was wondering if anyone out there could be my "Cube buddy" to help me out with some issues.
Any help would be appreciated,  Thanks
this is the link I was given for Mac software

For those interested, I finished making and replacing the stock extruder on my cube with an E3D V6.
All in all I can max out Z at 133, so I lost a few mm, but it works great.

Congrats on jail breaking and opensourcing the cubex printers.  I'm a disappointed owner of a stock cubex duo and am beginning the journey of converting my printer.  I was wondering if anyone has documented the items needed and steps to perform to get the conversion done.  I would greatly appreciate any documentation that exists or any help for that matter. 

Thanks all for any advice and assistance, I haven't had a chance to read the entire thread so if I've missed what I'm looking for, please just let me know and I'll go back and find it.

I Frankencubed mine as well, with excelent results. I used a dremmel to cut off the portion of the original board with the power/usb/fuse and used it in place to keep things looking nice. I did the same with the portion that had the USB port, as both had nice screw mounts to utilize for this.

I used every stock part, including extruder/hot-end, only replacing the control board with an MKS-BASE 1.0.

The fans had 12v regulators on them already, so running on the original 24v power supply was not a problem. Just make sure you observe and/or test the wires prior to powering them, or you'll blow up the regulators with reverse voltage. (I'll need to replace my cooling fan regulator because I did this.)

I set the stepper drivers with a multimeter on ground, and while touching the positive lead to the driver adjustment screw, I set them all to 2v (I think, I used an analogue multimeter, and I'm not sure if I was reading the scale properly), this made the motors run much quieter, and they don't get too hot.

I used Z-MAX since the limit switch is at the bottom, but MIN plug for both X and Y.

I'm currently using up the remainder of the spool of 1.6mm green it came with, but it will accept 1.75mm filament as well, you just have to remember to change the setting in your slicer.

The original screen is disabled currently and in place only for asthetics, but I plan on getting the 2.8 inch MKS-TFT and possibly the WiFi module, unless I find room for an Octo-Pi.  So far I enjoy that it still looks so clean.

Below you'll find my Marlin v1.1.0 RC8 Configuration.h, Slic3r config export, and CuraEngine config export. I've done a couple test prints with slicer, and a 'parts fit' test with cura, and the parts slid together whith little to no effort.

Edits for spelling and info aditions. Photos to come.
