About Project

Are you a fan of Taylor Swift? Do you want to own a 3D-printed statue of her that looks realistic and colorful? If so, you should check out FacFox’s 3D printing services. We can custom statues for you, your family, your friends or any one you love.

We have two options for you to choose from: PolyJet 3D printing technology and Binder Jetting 3D printing technology. Both methods can print colorful statues without extra painting, but they have different features and prices.

PolyJet 3D printing technology uses PolyJet Multi-Color Resin material, which produces smooth and detailed statues. The color is lighter and more natural, and the details are sharp and clear. You can see her hair, eyes, lips and the letters on her shirt are printed perfectly. This option is ideal for those who want a high-quality statue that looks like a miniature version of Taylor Swift.

Binder Jetting 3D printing technology uses CJP Fullcolor Sandstone material, which produces rougher and heavier statues. The color is darker and more tanned, and the details are less visible. You can still recognize her face and outfit, but they are not as crisp as the PolyJet option. This option is recommended for those who prefer a darker skin tone and have a lower budget.

The price difference between these two options is significant: The PolyJet statue costs twice as much as the Binder Jetting statue. So you need to consider your preferences and your wallet before making a decision.

To see the comparison of these two options in pictures, please visit our website or follow us on social media. You can also order your own custom statue online or contact us for more information.

Solution

The process of Binder Jetting 3D printing full-color sandstone sculpture:

  • Step 1: As the default layer thickness is 0.1mm and sandstone prints have medium tolerance, the thickness of all the modeling details was examined to ensure they can all be printed out.
  • Step 2: A rolling batch left a uniform layer of sandstone-like powder. From there two printing heads passed over the batch, coloring and adhering to the object at the same time. The batch of powder then made another pass, until the object was completed.
  • Step 3: After printing, the statue was 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 could then also be added to further improve strength and color appearance.

The process of PolyJet 3D printing full-color resin sculpture:

  • Step 1: The CAD file was imported into the slicer software. Its positioning was arranged and necessary supporting structures were added. Soluble PolyJet supports could help create complex models with no restrictions on geometry.
  • Step 2: A inkjet-type head deposited multiple droplets of Vero (white) and Agilus (black) onto the build plate, which was then cured by a UV light. After a thin layer was created, the process repeated itself by jetting additional layers until the part was fully formed.
  • Step 3: The supporting structure was removed by rinsing the model with water and isopropanol (IPA). The parts would need post-cure under UV light for optimal properties.
