Bringing 3D Printing to Life with Color
As 3D printing moves from a prototyping method to a viable production technique, the requirements for the raw materials used are changing as well.Gone are the days of dull, monochromatic 3D printed objects, say hello to vibrant and vivid color production.

How does 3D printing work again?While there are many 3D printing processes available today, the color dispersions we’re referring to are used in three different types of resin 3D printing: Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP) and Inkjet..
utilizes a transparent platform that sits on top of a resin tank, which allows the platform to be used as the substrate for the 3D image to be built on. The image is built using LED lights that are directed around the specific shape using mirrors. As each layer is formed the platform will ascend to allow a new layer of fresh resin to be cured into the shape.
