About

GAIA Multitool is a one of a kind multifunctional device that combines the capabilities of a 3D printer, CNC router, laser engraver, and a number of other tools, giving the user complete freedom to create exciting projects. But what makes GAIA Multitool truly special is its ability to 3D print models from clay, porcelain and many other 100% natural materials that users can prepare themselves!

GAIA Multitool gives you complete freedom to create items using almost every possible manufacturing technique. It uses 10 interchangeable toolheads, which turn the machine into several different devices. GAIA Multitool uses delta kinematics and is made from high quality components used in professional industrial machines.

It also uses 32-bit electronics based on Smoothieware as well as drivers dedicated for CNC milling machines.

 In this innovative 3D printer, as double socket joints, were used lubrication free and self-aligning iglidur spherical bearings.

  • Standard - with working area of X,Y ∅ 30cm, Z 40 cm
  • MAXX - with working area of X,Y ∅ 45xm, Z 105 cm
  • MINI - with working area of X,Y ∅ 20, Z 20 cm.

Each version is ideal for a different type of user depending on their needs and expectations. The Standard version is capable of utilizing all 10 of the various toolheads and has a large enough working area to satisfy the requirements of most typical projects. For larger projects, there is a larger version of the machine - MAXX is one of the biggest 3D printers on the market, with a maximum printing height of 175 cm. And yes, that means you'll be able to 3D print objects 1 meter high out of ceramics!

GAIA Mini is arguably the most unique device of the three. It has a classic working area of X,Y ∅ 20, Z 20 cm, and can easily be put on anyone's desk. At the same time, it can make use of most of the 10 interchangeable toolheads, and is capable of 3D printing from clay as well as from popular thermoplastics - ABS and PLA.

GAIA Multitool is one of the few 3D printers in the world that enables you to 3D print models from clay, porcelain, and other masses prepared by the user.

You can try using paper mass, paste or even chocolate. The machine uses two different extruders - one with a 1 liter tank, mounted on the nozzle, which can be used to print small objects, and a second one which contains a 10-liter tank, which enables you to print objects using the entire working area. Needless to say, that is very useful when printing with the GAIA Multitool MAXX which is capable of 3D printing objects over 1 meter high!

GAIA Multitool uses delta kinematics and is made from high quality components used in professional production machines. It also uses 32-bit electronics and drivers dedicated for CNC milling machines.

You can use 10 toolheads to help your imagination take three dimensional form. You can use many different manufacturing techniques from 3D printing,to milling, to laser engraving.

  • a 3D printing head for ceramics (1 liter of material) and other masses prepared by the user
  • a 3D printing head for ceramics and other masses prepared by the user, with a Bowden extruder (external tank with 10 liters of material) 
  • a 3D printing head for ceramics and other masses prepared by the user, with a cartridge (300 ml) built into the head itself, as opposed to an external tank 
  • a 3D printing head for FDM with a 3 mm nozzle 
  • a 3D printing head for FDM with 1.75 mm nozzle 
  • a diamond stylus for etching inscriptions on metal and glass 
  • a knife to cut out foil/adhesive letters or other templates 
  • a CNC milling machine for engraving inscriptions, drawings, carvings, etc. (CNC milling device not included with device)
  • a head equipped with a special marker for drawing (e.g. PCB tracks)
  • a laser engraver.

TYTAN 3D is run by two very capable designers in the Polish 3D printing community - Janusz Wojcik and Pawel Rokita. They are responsible for organizing the biggest 3D printing fair in Poland, Days of 3D Printing, as well as for running the very well-known FabLab in their hometown in Kielce, whose activities are aimed at 3D printing hobbyists and amateurs.

Last year, Wojcik and Rokita were almost unanimously voted MEN OF THE YEAR 2014 in the Polish 3D printing industry by a group of 40 experts during last year’s CD3D poll. The company is also well known for their popular FDM extruder - Goliath, which operates successfully in many 3D printers around the world.

They also cooperate with Institute of Design of their hometown Kielce, Poland.

GAIA Multitool is a high quality machine that expands the functionality of a typical 3D printer. We need funds to start mainstream production and develop the project further. We have a number of ideas that require R&D and we want to expand our production to a much higher level. And this requires funding.

Looking at our machines you might expect that we're already a fully operational company. That is unfortunately not currently the case... Both the creators of GAIA Multitool have completely different “day jobs” and this project was born "after hours". We need financial backing to make this part-time dream a full-time reality.

We believe in the project's unique features and that it has the ability to broaden the area of three dimensional manufacturing. We want to give you the freedom to create wonderful things in every conceivable way using just one device. We need your help in order to accomplish the goal of creating the best possible product.

Risks and challenges

As a matter of fact, there aren't many... We're already capable of producing these machines (and have produced a number of them). It's simply that our production method isn't terribly efficient and could really use some optimization. With the help of our backers we'll be able to optimize production and outfit our production facility with more equipment. We'll also be able to hire more staff, which will accelerate the manufacturing process.

We believe we have a high quality product that fills the needs of many Makers around the world. We just need your support to raise it to a higher level and bring GAIA Multitool to much wider audience.
