About Project

Besides hanging the photos of their highlight moments in their honor room, the client also ordered the 3D-printed statues of each of their founders and executives. Printing all these statues with ColorJet technology only costs less than $500, including the shipping fee.

Solution

  • Step 1: To produce full-color prints, a CAD model that contains the color information need to be built. Based on the photos sent from the client, the modelers build the 3D model of all the executives.
  • Step 2: A rolling batch leaves a uniform layer of sandstone-like powder. From there two printing heads pass over the batch, coloring and adhering to the object at the same time. The batch of powder then makes another pass, until the object is completed.
  • Step 3: After printing, the parts are then coated with cyanoacrylate (super glue) or a different infiltrant to improve part strength and enhance the vibrancy of the colors. A secondary epoxy layer can then also be added to further improve strength and color appearance.
