The MakerMex MM1 is a modular 3D printer, produced by Mexican 3D printer manufacturing company MakerMex, that is designed to be easily upgradable as and when required. The 3D printer is also capable of producing objects made of different materials.

The makers of this wonderfully unique modular 3D printer claim they are inspired by influences as diverse as the automotive industry or IKEA, in the sense that their products are highly customizable and can be upgraded and manipulated over time as technology advances.

This 3D printer also prints with multiple extrusion options, making it possible -- in MakerMex owner Sam Weatherly's words -- to "print with chocolate one minute and PLA plastic the next."

MakerMex is currently seeking $50,000 on Kickstarter to fund their modular 3D printer.
