Coloured 3D Printing Parts

Coloured 3D printing (PolyJet) is one of the latest processes to hit the industrial 3D Printing and general engineering markets and is increasingly popular in the dental, medical and retail industries.

From 3D data to desk, full-colour parts can be created in a matter of days.

By using a 3D colour printing machine, parts can be built such as a single colour engineering model through to multi-coloured professional action figures, giving your products an exceptional edge on reality.

There are many more potential applications for full colour 3D printing, from creating beautiful architectural models to making historical artefacts come back to life with their original colours.

What is PolyJet 3D colour printing?

PolyJet technology is continually evolving and is known for its realism as well as its sharp precision and ultra fine detailing.  It gives you the ability to create 3D colour printed parts with the gradients, textures, transparency or opacity your components require. 

With over a 1,000 materials to choose from it gives you the option to blend multiple digital materials within the printing process, making PolyJet printing extremely flexible.

Polyjet coloured 3D printing can also enables modelling of transparent parts (or semi-transparent through mixing), producing fully flexible models with a scale of rigidity that can match anything from a soft gasket to a vehicle tyre perfect for many industries.

How does PolyJet full colour 3D printing work?

Working similarly to a traditional inkjet printer, instead of jetting ink onto paper a print head will jet liquid photopolymers onto a build tray where each droplet cures in a flash of UV light. It can combine a variety of photopolymers in specific concentrations and microstructures to simulate everything from rubber, human tissue and plastics – impressive! With the detail it can produce and the 1000’s of colours, PolyJet coloured 3D printing is fast becoming a popular choice within the medical, retail and dental industry.
