If your 3D printer could do with a little enhancement or a few new features, a new external upgrade may be worth more investigation called the Palette, that has been created by Chris Labelle.
The Palette has been designed to enable your 3D printer to print a new range of items, watch the video below to learn more about this interesting concept, that is looking for funding over on the Kickstarter website.
With still 30 days remaining and thanks to over 120 backers the concept has already nearly raised the required $75,000 in funding it requires to make the jump into manufacture. Labelle explains more about his creation :
“We’ve seen 3D printers become easier to use, more affordable, and more accessible; but the range of objects they can create has remained the same. No one has taken these printers to the next level… until now.
The Palette lets you build an unprecedented range of creations on the 3D printer you already own. The ability to print with up to four colours, or materials with different properties, lets your printer move beyond creating simple, single colour plastic objects.
The Palette was designed from the ground up for the 3D printing community, it was engineered with simplicity in mind. If you can use a 3D printer, you can build high quality colour creations with The Palette. You can skip the upgrade cycle of buying an expensive printer, keep using your favourite slicer, and use whatever filament supplier you want!”
