Multicolour Multimaterial 3D Printer from Stratasys (the folks that brought Makerbot)

January 27, 2014 Benjamin Gray

The image above shows two bike helmets printed in full colour from two base materials, a rubber like component and a clear plastic component. Yes clear, that's interesting eh? Look what else you can print in a single run...

With lens in situ! That's a rather nice feature in the £200,000 printer. The printer can make composite forms with the two materials and can also be colour mixed to provide 45 colours in a single print run. The feature set can be found at the Stratasys website. Where with a little digging you can find their demo video, or you can watch it embedded with us.
