3 Key Factors in Advancing Multi-Material 3D Printing

If you’ve followed any of our blog posts (or Kickstarter updates) in the past, you’ll know that we believe firmly in transparency. In the spirit of this mantra, in this post, we reflect on the evolution of our products and share how you can expect our technology and products to evolve in the coming years, and how they fit into our mission. The Factors Our mission is to increase the range of objects that 3D printers can create (which we believe is essential in making 3D printing more useful). We see 3 factors as essential in achieving this mission. Below, we discuss and compare Palette (our first product) and Palette+ (recently released) so you can track and assess our progress on each...

Multi-Material Printing with Your 3D Printer: Introducing Palette+

We began developing Palette over three years ago with the goal of bringing multi-color printing to every filament-based (FFF/FDM) 3D printer. Over time, we came to realize that Palette’s core technology could offer more than multi-color PLA prints—it could enable multi-material printing. Time and time again, members of the 3D printing community would ask if Palette was compatible with water-soluble materials, engineering polymers, and flexible materials. The answer was always no—until today! We’re delighted to announce Palette+! Palette+ enables multi-material printing on most 1.75mm filament-based (FFF) printers. Palette+ is available for pre-order for $799 USD, with the first batch leaving our facility on July 31, 2017. Reserve yours by clicking here, or read on to find out more. Palette+ is...

Introducing CANVAS, the Industry's First Multi-Material Software Platform

Today, we announced CANVAS. In this post, we outline our thought processes: why are we creating CANVAS, who will derive value from it, and what will the platform offer? First—why are we creating a software platform? Three years ago, we founded Mosaic based on our belief in a future where multi-color and multi-material printing would become the industry standards in the desktop 3D printing space. We believe this is a critical step to enable printers to create a wide range of valuable end use products. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a number of hardware solutions come to market to help achieve a similar goal. Some that come to mind other than Palette (our solution) are the BCN3D Sigma,...
