Looking for a way to 3D print in multiple colors or materials?

With the Diamond Hotend Prusa i3 Hephestos kit, you can build your own multi-color and multi-material 3D printer.

Colorful 3D prints

We have taken bq’s well known do-it-yourself 3D printer kit and made it even better by replacing the default extruder with our own Diamond Hotend.  The Diamond Hotend allows you to create 3D prints with stunning color effects and combine different materials.
