The MakerGear Mosaic 3D Printer

June 02, 2011 3 Comments


We are very pleased to introduce Mosaic - your desktop 3D printing companion. Mosaic is an easy-to-assemble, low-maintenance, fantasically fantastic desktop 3D printer kit.



Mosaic features:

  • Easy-to-assemble, laser-cut wooden frame - assemble it using fasteners (screws/nuts) or for a super-rigid, super-easy assembly, just glue it!

  • Silky smooth linear guides and rails for reliability, consistency and accuracy.

  • PTFE (non-stick) coated lead screw. Incredibly smooth, 4-start, does not need to be lubricated! Makes adjusting your build platform a breeze!!

  • 3/8" precision-ground steel shafts with self-aligning, press-fit, precision bearings - resulting in a very stable build platform.

  • MakerGear 1.75mm or 3mm Stepper Plastruder

  • RAMPS electronics kit

  • NEMA 14 stepper motors with MXL pulleys and belts

  • Approx. 5" x 5" x 5" build envelope

  • Starter roll of PLA filament

Mosaic Plus includes

  • Heated Build Platform

  • Power Supply

  • Fully assembled electronics

  • PLA and ABS Filament Pack (assorted)


Mosaic is designed to be an easy-to-assemble, low-maintenance, easy-to-use 3D printer. If you are looking to really get your hands dirty with a printer that you can easily modify, tweak and change, take a look at the MakerGear Prusa 3D printer.

Mosaic is available for pre-order. We expect to start shipping in 5 to 7 weeks. Mosaic weighs approx. 6lbs assembled (not including the power supply.)

The files for the bolt set shown above can be found here. The threaded rod in the photo has a diameter of ~50mm. A higher resolution version of the above photo is posted on our Flickr page.

What material(s) in the produced object? What resolution/repeatability (alternatively, how many steps in the 5" range)?
