Mosaic Manufacturing recently made waves with the launch of the Palette, a system for printing multi-colored 3D objects. It prints in multiple colors by cutting snippets of colored filament from different spools and then melting them together inside the device’s plain enclosure. A separate sensor can tell the current filament position and ensures that the colors are accurately placed.
The printer can extrude different-colored layers to make multi-colored objects or create a melded color that can change from one color to the next with various gradients. While it’s not true “full color printing,” it’s about as close as you’re going to get these days for the early-bird price of $850.
The Palette has already raised $145,569 on Kickstarter. The team expects to ship in January 2016.
