About Project

The Classic of Mountains and Seas is a Chinese classic text and a compilation of mythic geography and beasts. Some artists decided to bring the animals into the real world and made 3D models according to the book. And we printed the beast with ColorJet technology to make them look like ancient sculptures.

Solution

  • Step 1: To produce full-color prints, a CAD model that contains the color information need to be built.
  • 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.
  • Step 4: The client paint the prints to make them look antique.
