What is the Inverse Kinematic Desktop Mixer?
Discover the Desktop Kinetic Mixer, a groundbreaking tool that brings advanced engineering to your creative endeavors. At the heart of its design is the innovative six-bar linkage system, a mechanism renowned for its precision and efficiency in motion control. This feature is crucial as it allows for a unique oscillating and tumbling motion, ensuring that your paints, powders, and pigments are mixed thoroughly and uniformly. Whether you're working on delicate miniature paintings or robust crafting projects, this mixer provides the perfect blend every time, with the reliability of advanced kinematics.

Experience unparalleled ease in achieving perfectly blended paints, powders, and more. Designed with hobbyists in mind, this compact and efficient tool ensures smooth, consistent results for every project. Say goodbye to manual stirring and uneven mixes, and embrace a new standard of precision and convenience in your creative work.

The mixer is perfectly sized to accomodate miniature paint bottles such as Vallejo, Citadel and Army Painter. Larger bottles will also fit with ease.

No matter your hobby - be it scale modeling, miniature painting, or crafting with resins - our mixer is ready to meet your needs. Its 90x55mm capacity drum caters to small and medium-sized projects, providing a versatile solution for a wide array of creative pursuits.

The mixer has had success with rocket enthusiasts, who I presume use this tool to help mix powders for their rocket engines.

As a fellow Aussie, I wanted to say a huge thank you. I was blown away when unboxing my mixer and impressed about the attention to detail in the packing of what seems like such a simple item. Mate - you've surpassed what I expected as my previous 3D printer was unable to print your files. I have had much better results from the Ultimaker S7 that we got for our work project. I was curious as to what printer you are using to get the results that you are getting. Thank you again - Verena
