In the world of 3D printing and mold making, there are only so many names that consistently manage to bring their A-game. Often refraining from providing the public with budget gadgets, Mayku’s renowned machines are top of the line, and the same goes for their latest. With their brand new Multiplier, an incredibly intricate and easy-to-use pressure former, the opportunities for creativity are limitless.
Pressure forming has never really been a beginner’s game, as the practice has typically been an industrial-level manufacturing process. And while the Multiplier isn’t necessarily an entry-level machine, it is certainly user-friendly accounting for the power it possesses — especially when accounting for the fact that this machine brings factory-level tech to your desktop. Making use of a combination of heat and compressed air, Mayku’s latest gadget forms layers of material by way of utilizing four atmospheres of pressure, allowing users to create all kinds of molds for manufacturing nearly any product. Capable of capturing details as fine as a single strand of hair, the mold-making process merely takes a minute to curate. Designed by Teenage Engineering with portability in mind, the device can fit on your desktop and sports a sleek and modern look.
As versatile as it gets, the Multiplier’s pressure-formed manufacturing can be utilized in countless disciplines, from chocolatiers to shoe designers, proving it’s well equipped for anything you might have in mind. Currently garnering its first run on the market, Mayku has the Multiplier available for pre-order through its website for an early bird price of $2,799 (MSRP $4,999), with shipping expected in April.
