Voxel8, a private company based in Somerville, MA, has created the world’s first multi-material 3D printer for fabricating embedded electronics and other novel devices. The company’s disruptive platform enables designers and engineers to integrate form and function in 3D printed objects. Launched in Fall 2014, Voxel8 leverages over a decade of patented research on printing functional materials from Harvard Professor Jennifer Lewis. In January 2015, Voxel8 began taking pre-orders on its first product, the Voxel8 Developer’s Kit, which was highlighted as “one of the 9 best ideas from CES 2015” by Fast Company and was selected as a Gold Medalist for the 2015 Edison Awards. Ultimately, Voxel8’s technology pipeline will enable the mass customization of electronics and other finished products.
