About

Our Mission

3D Printing is a new industry that has been rapidly evolving over the past decade. During this amazing time, there are printers that have either focused on performance or quality of the print, but none have been able to overcome both feats—leaving users with expensive machines with subpar features and performance.

At NIXTEK, we believe it’s time we changed that.

Introducing Tomato

The world’s 1st ever, full color process desktop 3D printer—capable of printing in High Resolution of up to 10 microns (0.01 mm). With added functionality of printing colors vertically.

Features

Chromatic, Four Color Process

Color is a tool that helps us gauge our perception of reality to create new expressions of emotion. And with Tomato's mixing chamber, it's capable of mixing up to 4 different color filaments, resulting in infinite color possibilities.

State of the Art Mixing Chamber

This is where the real magic happens. Tomato's hot end extruder has a unique built-in mixing chamber that allows color filaments to be injected and mixed based on your printing needs.

High Resolution 10 micron (0.01 mm) printing

Tomato has been built from the ground up to ultimately becomes the world’s best desktop 3D printer. And with new developments, we proudly anounce that Tomato is now capable of achieving a printing resolution of up to 10 microns. In other words, printing at any resolution will result in a ultra-fine, smoother finished product.

Unwaveringly Stable & Totally Mess Free

Vibration is every 3D printer's worst nightmare. Tomato's frame is made out of high-strength aluminum alloy to provide stability during the printing process. The aluminum alloy frame has been anodized for increased durability, resulting in a smooth finish.

Built in to the Tomato heating platform is a cutting edge, ultra-smooth ceramic glass. Plus, a combined thermoconductive aluminum heat bed provides you with an even heated printing area. No more dealing with silicone films or non-stick adhesive.

Easier Done Than Said

Printing in 3D has never been easier. Now with its built-in LCD Screen + Jog Wheel and SD Card Functionality--you are now ready to prototype faster than ever before.

Risks and challenges

The most challenging aspects for a complex project like this one is manufacturing and production.

We’ve seen from other Kickstarter campaigns that it can be difficult to deliver everything on schedule, especially when the project is extremely successful.

To overcome this we have already lined up a sourcing manufacturing partner that will oversee the production of Tomato.
