Nixtek is currently promoting their Tomato desktop 3D printer based on FDM technology on Kickstarter. Due to its extruder being equipped with a mixing chamber, the printer is capable of mixing up to 4 different colour filaments resulting in multi-colour 3D prints.
This method is based on the CMYK colour model commonly used in colour printing, working with the four different colours cyan, magenta, yellow and black.
Featuring a build volume of 225 x 225 x 200 mm and a heated print bed, the Tomato is capable of 3D printing with a precision of 50 microns. Its aluminium alloy frame provides stability during the printing process. The device is equipped with a LCD screen and SD card slot.

The first 10 Early Bird offers are already gone, but you can still get Tomato for a pledge of $ 2,000. With a funding goal of $ 100,000 the campaign runs until July 10th. The company plans to deliver the first batch of printers in November this year.
