Sorry, we are sad to announce Tooli has been discontinued.
The original Tooli was brought to life with the help of supporters from the Kickstarter community. Tooli continued to gain support as more and more creative people from all around the world learned of Tooli’s unique capabilities. Within less than twelve months of Tooli rolling of the production line, the original production run had sold out. At this point, it was decided to release a second generation of Tooli – Tooli G2. The G2 met with reasonable success, and within six months the planned production run of G2’s had sold out. And although we consider the Tooli project to have been a success overall, the decision has been made to discontinue Tooli. As of 10 November 2017 no more Tooli’s will be produced.
We would like to sincerely thank all supporters for helping make the Tooli project a success. All Original and G2 Tooli’s will continue to be supported by Toolbotics.
Tooli is available in three sizes - small, medium and large.
|Tooli size||Work envelope (w x d x h)||Footprint (w x d)||Weight w/o tools|
|Small||42 x 30 x 7.5 cm (16.5 x 12 x 3 in)||62 x 56 cm (25 x 22 in)||6.8 kg (15 lbs)|
|Medium||60 x 42 x 7.5 cm (23.6 x 16.5 x 3 in)||80 x 68 cm (32 x 27 in)||7.5 kg (16.5 lbs)|
|Large||84 x 60 x 7.5 cm (33 x 23.6 x 3 in)||104 x 86 cm (41 x 34 in)||8.4 kg (18.5 lbs)|
Tooli ships with all toolheads, tools and accessories that allow you to draw, cut, score, stamp, drill, engrave, paint, dispense, pick & Place.
Some tools require compressed air supply – not included. Does not include consumables.
MULTI-TOOL TOOLHEAD The Multi-tool toolhead incorporates a unique Z axis slide, which allows the use of a wide range of tools. The stepper motor driven slide has a variable stroke of 0-10mm, which provides ultimate control over plunge speed and depth. Additionally, the Z axis floats and has adjustable down-force from 50 to 1000g (2 to 35oz). This rather unique design offers unprecedented flexibility, and is suitable for soft-touch tools such as paintbrushes and maker pens, through to hard-touch tools such as knifes and scorers.
Included Multi-tool tools and accessories
Rotary tool – for light drilling and engraving (0-18000rpm NLS)
Plotting knife – for cutting paper stock, adhesives and spray masks
Scoring tool – for creasing paper or card stock
Dispenser – for dispensing pastes such as icing or glue
Hot knife – for cutting Styrofoam
Pick & place tool – for precisely placing small items
Please note some tools require a regulated compressed air supply – not included.
AIRBRUSH TOOLHEAD The Airbrush toolhead is a unique graphic paint application device. Similar to handheld airbrushes, compressed air is used to expel paint from the tip of the airbrush. Airflow is activated automatically, and paint flow is controlled with precision via an onboard stepper motor. This provides ultimate control over paint density stroke by stroke. Tooli supports multicolor artworks by automatically pausing when it’s time to change color. The non-contact nature of the airbrush allows you to paint on a wide variety of medium including cloth and uneven surfaces. You can even use the multifunctional ability of Tooli to cut masks for even greater versatility when producing works of art.
Included Airbrush tools and accessories
Airbrush tool – with magnetic mounts for quick release
Air Valve – with push-in connectors
Air Hose – with airflow adjuster and quick release connector
Please note the airbrush requires a regulated compressed air supply – not included.

Included Tools and Features
The Multitool toolhead enabes Tooli to draw with anything from Markers to pencils, or even crayons and pastels. Advanced features such as wear compensation provide unlimited posibilities.
The Paintbrush feature allows Tooli to paint with an actual paintbrush, using any type of paint/medium. Options for how to execute strokes, and how to reload the brush with paint, provide great flexability for the creative to explore.
Use to cut Styrofoam, the Hot Knife cuts a path by passing a very hot thin metal rod through the material. The Hot Knife offers a maximum cutting depth of 32mm, and is great for cutting intricate shapes.
The Knife Tool can be used to cut self adhesive vinyl, paper, thin card and other thin films. Great for making signs, cutting masks, and paper craft creations.
The Scorer Tool can be used to crease paper, card, and other thin films. Used together with the Knife Tool, the Scorer Tool is great for making folded paper creations.
The Rotary Tool is used for light drilling or engraving in soft materials, such as foam or linoleum - as used for block printing.
The Dispenser can be used to dispense a wide range of mediums, on to any flat surface. Great for making unique cake decorations, or accurately dispensing glues and pastes.
The Pick and Place tool can be used to precisely place small items, and it plays well with the Dispenser. Great for placing sweets on to icing, or placing small items on to dispensed glue.
The Airbrush can be used to spray liquids such as ink or low viscosity paints, on to a wide range of media. Great for simple t-shirt prints, or when used with masks the airbrush can create detailed artworks.
