Back in June of last year, we reported on a company called Tytan 3D, and a new Delta-style 3D printer that they were set to release. It promised to be able to print in a plethora of interesting materials, including paper pulp, a flour/salt mixture, and ceramics, among many other things. Since that time, the company has launched the Tytan 3D GAJA Multitool 3D printer, which is an ultimate all-in-one machine.
Today, Tytan 3D’s co-founder, Janusz Wojcik has informed 3DPrint.com that they have unveiled an all new 3D printer to market, called the GAJA Multitool MAXX.
“It has all the features of Standard version, but has a very big printing area of 45 x 105 cm (1,5 x 3,4 ft),” Wojcik, who also runs FabLab Kielce and organizes Dni Druku 3D (Days of 3D Printing) in Poland tells 3DPrint.com. “The height of our printer is also very impressive which is 175 cm (5.8 ft). Thanks to it’s size, it can print unique objects from clay and ceramics 1 meter high.”
If a simple desktop 3D printer isn’t enough of you, then perhaps the GAJA Multitool would be the perfect fit. It features an impressive 10 different interchangeable toolheads which turn the 3D printer into much more than just a printer. It has heads for the following:
- 3D printing head for ceramics (1 liter of material)
- 3D printing head for ceramics with a Bowden extruder (external tank with 10 liters of material)
- 3D printing head for ceramics with a cartridge (300 ml) built into the head itself, as opposed to via an external tank
- 3D printing head for FDM with a 3 mm nozzle
- 3D printing head for FDM with 1.75 mm nozzle
- Diamond stylus for etching inscriptions on metal and glass
- Knife to cut out foil/adhesive letters or other templates
- CNC milling machine head for engraving inscriptions, drawings, carvings, etc.
- Head equipped with a special marker for drawing (e.g. PCB tracks)
- A laser engraving head
As for the price of this new 3D printer, it is available for 36.000 PLN (approximately $9,600), which is twice the price of the GAJA Multitool Standard printer ($4,800).
When it comes to all-in-one machines like the GAJA Multitool, this appears to be a very high quality tool. The price tag is a bit high, when compared to normal desktop 3D printers, but this machine is far from normal. The large build volume makes it perfect for printing in various clays for the fabrication of large ceramic objects. The ability to interchange tool heads will save a lot of money on other equipment as well.
Titan 3D has made several videos available demonstrating the GAJA Multitool MAXX in action. Some of these can be seen below, with others available on YouTube.
