MM1 modular multimaterial 3d printer by MakerMex




MM1 is a new 3d printer by MakerMex from Mexico. The main feature of MM1 is the modularity of the extruder head that is easily replaceable and could be upgraded in the future. It is a standard "feature" of any DIY 3d printer where you can find many upgrades for your machine, make and install it yourself. I think MM1 aims at users that lack knowledge or time to learn skillset needed to make attachments themselves.
MM1 wants to achieve ability of multiple material printing with their extruder and printbed modules.
