3D Printing has entered the digital age.  3D Printers are now being created that print circuit boards.  In the future, you could use a 3D Printer to build a damaged circuit board for your computer, your smart phone, or, heaven for fend, your game controller.  The Cartesian Co. printer EX¹ is designed to do just that:

The EX¹ makes printing circuits as quick and easy as printing a photo – allowing you to print on the material of your choice.

What is it?

The Cartesian Co. printer EX¹ transforms electronics and prototyping in the same way that 3D printing has made things possible that were inconceivable even 5 years ago.
The EX¹ printer is not designed to create any 3D object like normal 3D printers. It’s been crafted and designed for one key purpose, to allow you to 3D print circuit boards, layering silver nano particles onto paper or any suitable surface to rapidly create a circuit board. In 2011, an article in Wired said that within two years 3D printers could print electronic circuits. Two years to the day, we’re announcing the EX¹, a printer that allows you to rapidly 3D print circuit boards.
The process is as easy as clicking File Print. This lets you create electronics, just as you’ve envisioned – wearable electronics, paper circuits, printed computers or whatever you imagine. A 3D printer creates the objects of your imagination; the EX¹ lets you create the electronics of your imagination.
