Mosaic Enables Industrial, Multi-Material Functionality on Filament-Based (FFF) Desktop 3D Printers with Palette+

Headphone and cell phone case prototypes created using rigid and flexible materials together.

We’re thrilled to release Palette+ and bring multi-material 3D printing to all 3D printers. The addition of soluble, flexible, and engineering grade materials unlocks entirely new markets that can benefit from 3D printing.” – Chris Labelle, COO

Mosaic Manufacturing Ltd., the Toronto-based 3D printing technology company, today announced Palette+, a device that enables multi-material printing in filament-based (FFF/FDM) printers. Palette+ is the new and improved version of Mosaic’s flagship product, Palette, and follows the successful fulfillment of Palette’s Kickstarter campaign.

Palette+ enables new materials to be used together through a single extruder. These filament combinations include PLA with Water-Soluble, PLA with TPU (flexible), and PETG with PETG. Through the combination of these materials, Mosaic is bringing industrial functionality to the desktop 3D printing market, and enables filament-based printers to create a wider variety of objects.

At the core of Palette+’s enhancements is its new filament splicing technology, which enables the combination of different materials in a single print. This new splicing technology also creates stronger, more consistent splices, which leads to a substantially more reliable user experience.

As a result of these advancements, Palette+ can now support a far greater range of materials and enable multi-material printing from printers with only one extruder.

The pictured iPhone case was printed with PLA and a flexible TPU hinge. The headphones were printed in several parts and assembled. The outer headband has 3 colors of durable PETG. The teal earphones were made in PLA with…
