RELIABLE, FLEXIBLE & INTUITIVE - ELEMENT from Mosaic Manufacturing
Experience a new level of 3D printing potential with Mosaic’s new multi-material & multicolour 3D printer. Element expands on what we’ve learned from the Mosaic Palette and integrates it into a seamless workflow - from an idea to reality. A Palette X within Element makes it possible to print up to 8 materials and colours in a single part. By using CANVAS slicer software, Mosaic Material Pods and Materials, Element automates the entire process.

MULTI-MATERIAL MANAGEMENT & AUTOMATED WORKFLOW EXPLAINED
As mentioned above, using Mosaic Materials and Material Pods with Element allows you to automate your workflow.
Each Material Pod contains a motor which feeds filament from the Pod to Palette X, and onwards to the print head. Unlike our standalone Palette device, Palette X does not splice the materials. The reason for this is that when using multiple combinations of different material types, splicing becomes less reliable. Element, along with Palette X, has full control over material management and therefore does not require splicing. This promotes higher quality prints while also resulting in less material waste.
Element is also cloud connected to CANVAS. This means creating, editing, organizing and slicing your multi-material models and sending them to the printer is extremely easy. What could once take up to an hour or more becomes a process reduced to a matter of minutes.
CLOUD CONNECTED TO CANVAS, FREE SINGLE USER LICENSE INCLUDED
CANVAS is Mosaic’s simple and easy-to-use slicer software. CANVAS comes free for a single user and CANVAS TEAMS will be available for those with a larger workforce, allowing effective collaboration.
- Perfect for one material, built for multi-material.
- Set accesses for everyone on the team, from Owners to Contributors.
- Apply color, logos, serial numbers and more directly to your single file 3D models by digitally painting in CANVAS.
- Share, Save, organize, and track your print settings in the cloud for yourself or with the team.
- Monitor your prints from home, or anywhere, using Element’s webcams connected to CANVAS.
Element Features Spotlight
With a build volume of 14” 3, you’re able to maximize productivity and print several pieces at once, in different colours and materials.
Printing in multicolour with Element is just as easy as printing in one. The option to have 8 colours on deck at any time means the possibilities are endless.
Element’s cloud connectivity to CANVAS optimizes the user experience and allows full control over your projects conveniently from the printer itself.
A modular design makes it easier than ever to remove your print head for repairs or a swap, and reinstalling it is just as simple!
1. Choose: Element uses a modular direct-drive toolhead, capable of 350°C material prints, which can be removed in seconds. Choose up to 8 materials/colours per print with a single toolhead. Element HT broadens your selection to include engineering grade materials with a hot-end capable of 500°C.
Create prints that are up to 14” 3 and use CANVAS to easily paint or assign up to 8 materials/colours per print. Upload files wirelessly and control your printer from anywhere where an internet connection is available using a web browser to access canvas3d.io
. Spend less time configuring settings by using premade print profiles tuned for Mosaic materials.
3. Load: Start your print and Mosaic Material Pods work directly with Palette X to seamlessly automate the filament loading process. It is worth noting that this process is only automated when using Mosaic Materials.
4. Print: Watch your print complete using CoreXY kinematics, Trinamic stepper drivers and rapid travel speeds on HIWIN linear rails. Transition quickly between materials without losing build space with Element’s short material path coupled with our transition densifier system, which deposits transition material safely into a removable container. While Element works, use the touchscreen UI to check printer operation at any time directly from the printer.
5. Monitor: Element’s built in webcam lets you check on your print remotely through CANVAS to make sure the process is running smoothly. Mosaic Materials contain RFID technology that enables automated failure and filament run-out detection. You will be notified by the LED status indicator and on the touchscreen UI on the front of Element if the printer or print requires an operator’s attention.
6. Completion & Removal: Mosaic’s build plates are magnetically held in place so they are easy to remove from Element. They are also flexible which makes removing the print from the plate a painless process. Upon placing the plate back into Element to start your next print, it will automatically level to achieve consistent first layers.
