Chesapeake, Va.-based MakerMex has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds to manufacture its versatile and innovative 3D printer, The MM1 modular 3D printing system. The MM1 is capable of printing single extrusion, dual extrusion and paste extrusion and will print a wide variety of materials such as rubber, clay, chocolate, high strength industrial plastics, Play-doh, and more.

MakerMexMM1 is known as a comprehensive 3D printing platform that eliminates the need to replace or update outdated prints. The device has a unique, modular design and interchangeable extrusion heads, and additional accessories that allows the printer to accommodate advances in 3D printing.

The MakerMex team noted, “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 funding goal for the MM1 printer is set at $50,000, and the crowdfunding campaign will run for 30 days. Early backers can purchase the MM1 on Kickstarter for a limited-time price of $999. Backers will also be able to purchase the MM1 with select modular add-ons for an additional price. The MM1 is unique because it aims to be versatile enough to adapt to future technologies as they are developed, eliminating the consumer’s need to buy an additional 3D printer in a few years.

Co-founder of MakerMex, Sam Weatherly also stated, “The possibilities of the MM1 printing system are truly endless. All of the available add-ons provide a customizable printer for each consumer depending on what their 3D printing needs are. The modular design enables the MM1 to adapt to future technologies, ensuring that this printing system will stay relevant and useful for years to come.”

MM1 2MakerMex is currently offering four other extrusion systems: a flexible extruder, a dual extruder, a paste extruder and a high temperature extruder. The MM1 printer is designed to be extremely user-friendly so consumers can easily switch materials based on what their printing needs may be at that time. Consumers will also have the ability to customize their printer with accessories such as WiFi capability and auto-leveling beds

The MM1 printer will be available in black and orange, white and silver, and a custom engraved green and white Kickstarter limited edition. In addition to the extrusion systems, backers will also be able to include filament options to their pledges with a wide variety starting at only $34.

Set to close on November 1st, the MM1 has so far raised $17,534.
