About Project

This antique Go board is made as a prop for the TV drama Hikaru no Go, in which a teenage boy touched an ancient Go board and release the spirit of a Go master. The board is printed with Colorjet technology. Combined with sandstone and glue, it's as strong as stones.


  • Step 1: To produce full-color prints, a CAD model that contains the color information need to be built. Remember that the carved lines are also needed to be modeled.
  • 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.
