Mosaic Manufacturing will turn your Single Color 3D Printer into a Multi-Color 3D Printer (VIDEO)

A new Canadian start-up has released a video showing off the capabilities of its new 3D printing filament managing system. The system will work with your slicer program and automatically feed multiple colors of filament into a single extruder 3D printer.

Mosaic Manufacturing was formed by five Canadian college students who recently took first place in the Queens College Summer Innovation Initiative business pitch competition. This came at the tail end of a three-month long business development program that helped them develop their winning pitch. Students Danny Lloyd, Chris Labelle, Derek Vogt, Heather Evans, and Mitchell Debora took home $40,000 in seed money to launch their new venture.

The 3D printer software and accessory allows a standard single extruder 3D printer to print models in multiple colors. The filament is fed into the Mosaic box and the software works with your slicer to cut and fuse together the filament in the exact quantities needed to print some impressively clean multi-color 3D models. Mosaic Manufacturing says that its system is extremely accurate and there won’t be the oozing or color bleeding that can happen with similar multi-color 3D printing methods. … (Read more)
