Squink, featured on Makezine.com, 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. 

Squink uses three interchangeable heads:

  • Print circuit traces quickly on a variety of stiff and flexible materials. Load Gerber or image files 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 toolhead. You can even experiment with your own glues to make durable flexible circuits. Get perfect circuits every time!
  • Make complex, compact electronic designs like custom-shaped LED arrays, flexible Arduinos, hyper-light drones, or whatever else you can think of, using the Pick-and-Place toolhead. If you can think it, you can make it - easy and reliable!

Squink's powerful onboard software provides you with a smooth and reliable process for electronic circuit manufacturing from your desk. Squink relies on an on-board computer featuring an ARM Cortex-A8 processor with two real time controllers, SIMD and GPU acceleration. All you need to do is connect to Squink via Ethernet or WiFi and use your browser to interface with the machine - no need to install additional software! Even better: Squink gets smarter every week with updates accessible at the click of a button. Build smart devices with a smart device!

Make sure to add on ink and printing substrates so you can start creating your own unique circuits right away! Choose from Standard or Advanced Ink, depending on the type of material you want to print on.
