About Project

A student created this ballet dancer mini figure and named it My Little Swan. She experimentally used coffee and oil paint to color the clear resin 3D print, turned it into some antique glass craft.

Solution

  • Step 1: Just like processing other 3D models with rich details, we first need to examine the model and make sure the layer thickness is enough for printing.
  • Step 2: 3D print the statue with SLA Clear Resin. It seems simple but requires a lot of experience. We have printed tens of clear parts every day and tuned the 3D printer to the best condition.
  • Step 3: When printing is finished, remove the supports and rinse it with IPA, then manually sand and polish it with 400-4000 grit sandpaper until the print becomes transparent.
  • Step 4: Spray the parts evenly with clear acrylic oil. As the oil protection layer has a thickness, the dimension of parts may be affected, so the clear parts are used just as display models, not functional ones.
  • Step 5: The client tries to color the clear print with oil paints, coffee, and pencils as experiment.
