About Project

Henry the Fox, the mascot of FacFox, is back with a new look. He is now dyed black, giving him a sleek and elegant appearance. Henry was printed using MJF (Multi Jet Fusion) technology, which is a powder-based 3D printing process that creates strong and durable parts with complex geometries.

Henry’s black color was achieved by immersing him in a hot color bath, which penetrated his porous surface. The dyeing process did not affect his dimensions or details, and he still has a smooth and uniform texture. His surface is also sealed by the dye, making him more resistant to wear and tear.

Henry is not only a mascot, but also a demonstration of the versatility and efficiency of FacFox’s 3D printing services. Whether you need prototypes, functional parts, or custom products, FacFox can help you turn your ideas into reality with MJF technology. You can choose from a variety of materials, colors, and finishes to suit your needs and preferences. FacFox also offers fast turnaround times, competitive prices, and excellent customer support.

Solution

  • Step 1: A 3D model of Henry the fox was created using a CAD software and uploaded to the HP 3D printer software.
  • Step 2: The software optimized the model for MJF 3D printing and packed it efficiently in the build chamber.
  • Step 3: A build unit was inserted into the 3D printer and a layer of polypropylene (PP) powder was spread over the print area.
  • Step 4: A fusing agent was applied selectively on the areas where Henry’s shape was to be solidified, and a detailing agent was applied on the edges to create sharper boundaries.
  • Step 5: The build area was heated by infrared lamps, causing the fusing agent to absorb more heat and melt the PP powder, while the detailing agent reduced the heat absorption and prevented unwanted melting.
  • Step 6: The melted PP powder was fused into a solid layer, forming part of Henry’s body.
  • Step 7: The process was repeated for each layer until Henry was fully printed.
  • Step 8: The build unit was removed from the 3D printer and transferred to a processing station, where Henry was cooled down and extracted from the powder bed.
  • Step 9: Soak Henry the fox in black dye solution for minutes to dye it black. Henry was ready to be shipped or used as a sample.
