About this project

VIDEO: 3D printing keychains for the Indy Mini Maker Faire

ABOUT

Make your imagination into something real with the Indymaker color 3D printer.

3D printing technology makes solid objects limited only by imagination. Expand those limits in the dimension of color.

Create custom home accessories, arts and crafts, tools, toys, even replace missing or broken parts. Using the colors you choose!

Dream It Think It Make It

Project Description

The Indymaker color 3D Printer features a built-in spooler with four independent filament bays. A computer-controlled filament switch integrates with the spooling bay to deliver your choice of color, when and where you want it.

I built my first 3D printer kit early in 2011. I quickly realized they missed a feature I wanted, the ability to print in more than one color with ease. As a former consumer electronics engineer, I couldn't help but try to solve that problem. Thus was born the Indymaker.

Several protoypes later the final design emerges (see website). I'd like to Kickstart the Indymaker to integrate the electronics, take advantage of price scaling, and to get good constructive feedback from early users.
