“Technology has become a game of “out with the old and in with the new,” but the MM1 printer is designed to grow with you over time. Users can customize their 3D printer with accessories such as Wi-Fi capabilities, auto-leveling beds, heated beds, acrylic enclosed walls, and additional extruders that print paste, wood, single and dual extrusions and more.
The MM1 is ready for modification by you! The four current extrusion systems we offer are a single extruder, a dual extruder, a paste extruder and a high temperature extruder – they have each been designed for user-friendly interchanges with a single connector to keep the modular system plug-and-play.
We modeled this printer with versatility and expansion in mind. We have created a platform to provide a unique, customizable experience for those interested in 3D printing. With its customizations, the MM1 can be the perfect printer for anyone – you can print with chocolate one minute and PLA plastic the next. The possibilities with the MM1 Modular 3D Printing System truly are inspiring!”
