Multilayer Upgrade

Multilayer Upgrade


Upgrade your Squink Multilayer PCB Printer to use insulating ink and create a Multilayer Circuit board in minutes


**This item will be fulfilled and shipped after three weeks (as of June 2016 due to high demand)**
Upgrade your existing Squink to print Multilayer PCBs. With a UV lamp integrated into the Print head, you can print BotFactory’s insulating ink and create a Multilayer Circuit board in minutes. The vias between the layers are simply holes that allow the conductive traces on different layers to connect with one another. While there is no hardware limitations for printing PCBs with more than 2 layers, BotFactory officially supports printing dual-layer boards and will support more layers in upcoming software updates.

Squink, featured on, is a personal circuit factory offering a seamless experience while prototyping faster and more affordably, producing repeatable and reliable results without all the mess and complication. Think of Squink as a ‘PCB 3D Printer’ (PCB stands for ‘Printed Circuit Board’) and remember that every electronic device from your phone to your car has PCBs in them, and you can see how revolutionary Squink is!

There are three Squink Variants – this upgrade is for the Squink Multilayer PCB Printer, which allows you to print and assemble multilayer PCBs. Check out Squink Basic PCB Printer and Premium Squink Set on Makershed to see which variant fits your needs and budget.

Squink uses three interchangeable heads:

  • Print multiple layers of conductive and insulating inks on a variety of stiff and flexible materials, like FR-4 and Kapton (dual-layer boards only are officially supported – more layers possible in future software updates) . Use Insulating ink to ‘treat’ a surface (like fabrics or porous materials) so that you can build a PCB on nearly anything. Load Gerber or image files (.jpg, .png and .bmp) into the printer's web interface and print your circuits in mere minutes!
  • Lay down solder paste or conductive glue on printed or pre-fab boards easily with the Extruder tool head. You can even experiment with your own glues to make durable flexible circuits. No more solder stencils!
  • Pick-and-place components like resistors and chips onto your circuit and avoid the shaky hand and wasted time. Combined with the Extruder head, you can use Squink to assemble pre-fabbed boards as well as Squink-printed circuits.
