About Project

This couple has three enviable lovely daughters. It's the first statue we have ever 3D printed for a full family. Printing this model with SLA resin would cost a lot as there are so many supports needed. But with ColorJet sandstone, the powder can serve as supports itself.


  • 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 the family.
  • 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.
