About Project

Check out this fantastic full-color butterfly statue made with binder jetting 3D printing technology!

The meshes with different colors have been printed accurately and have clear borders.

One drawback: its rough texture makes fabrics like cotton easily adhere to it.

This incredible piece combines good details and vibrant colors and cheap costs – a perfect blend of technology and art.


  • 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 butterfly 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.
