The PMM CEO "Piranha" did not like his G305 shape and decided to design and 3D print a new shell, posted it on Reddit and people asked if they could order: PMM was born. Discover the incredible story behind the birth of PMM, when the CEO 'Piranha' took matters into his own hands and 3D printed a brand new shell.
One of the first wireless gaming mice with super good latency was released. Many people didn't like the shape and weight so PMM started offering 3D printed shells to replace the original.

SWITCH TO SLA PRINTING
In 2020 PMM switched from FDM to SLA printing. The big advantage is a much more detailed and clean print.
PMM upgraded from SLA printing to MJF printing. The mouse shells got a lot more durable and even a bit lighter since the density is lower. Multi Jet Fusion uses powder instead of liquid resin.
At the beginning, PMM only used Logitech internals. In 2022 Razer internals were added to it's arsenal - allowing up to 8K polling rate and even lighter mice.
PMM started using AI to further improve the weight and sturdiness of the shell. AI finds the perfect balance between sturdiness and weight, something a human would need a lot of trial and error for.
While the grip on an uncoated MJF part was decent, PMM decided to take things to the next level. The new ceramic coating provides excellent grip - no grip tape needed! The ceramic coating is probably one of the most durable coatings on the market. It is therefore often used for guns or machines.
3D scanners allow us to 3D scan your modeled shapes or any existing shapes. The created 3D mesh is then used as reference for the mouse shell.
MADE IN GERMANY
PMM produces individual gaming mice in Germany. Say no to mass production!
