About Project

An expert can readily tell the pots from real potteries, but common people won't think that they are printed with Colorjet technology and made of sandstone-like plaster. These antique-style pots, jars and cups are produced for a museum instead of displaying real cultural relics.


  • 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.
