EX¹ 3D Prints Circuit Boards: Rapidest Prototyping


Last year we found out about a new material that could be used with 3D printers to make simple electronic sensors. If that tinkled the tinkerer in you, wait ’til you see the EX¹ 3D printer. Made by a group of young geniuses calling themselves Cartesian Co., EX¹ prints circuit boards, and does so on a variety of materials.

EX¹ prints a circuit board using two chemicals that react to leave silver nano particles on a surface. Cartesian Co. claims they have successfully used this process to print circuits on a variety of materials, including “plastic (many types), glass, wood, ceramic, silicone and even fabric and paper.” They’re also working on a coating that can make any surface compatible with the EX¹.

Pledge at least $1,499 (USD) on Kickstarter to get an EX¹ printer  – plus cartridges and substrates to print on – as a reward.
