Developers at M3D have created a four filament 3D printing head aptly named the QuadFusion witches this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the $10,000 required to take the design into production. The QuadFusion 3D printing head is the first four filament mixing extruder, allowing you to mix both colours and materials to expand your creativity even further. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the QuadFusion 3D printing head which is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $159.
The 3D printing head is capable of combining Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Key (CMYK) filaments allowing you to print over 50,000 unique colours. Or if you prefer combining Black, White, or Transparent 3D printing filaments allowing you to create lighter and darker shades using the black-and-white and also the degree of transparency if required.
“Until now, full-color palette 3D printing has been the ultimate dream for 3D enthusiasts. Some commercial products have been introduced in recent years, but they come with limitations and a high price tag. Few options exist under the $3000 price point. A few multi-filament extruders and advanced add-ons are on the market but they are are limited, for example by mixing just two or three filaments, printing only in PLA, or relying on multiple independent nozzles. The QuadFusion is the first four-filament mixing extruder available on the consumer market.”
