In order to get the most out of our desktop 3D printers, we need a wider variety of printheads. Makers have long been experimenting with the idea of universal paste extruders, syringe-like devices that can handle more viscous materials for 3D printing. And, though many have successfully created such printheads,Structur3D will be launching the first commercially available paste extrusion system at the Maker Faire this weekend.
The Discov3ry paste extrusion system is more than just a syringe printhead that can squirt out a variety of goops. Structr3D bills it as a plug-n-play device that anyone can attach to their existing RepRap-style 3D printer, including Makerbots and Ultimakers, and begin printing.
