Models made out of multicolor are constructed from a fine granular powder. Multicolor is the only material that offers full color models at a good price. We recommend this material for demo models exclusively. The surface has a sandy, granular look.
Multicolor costs 0.55 euro/cm³ (model volume). This doesn't include the startup cost of 8€/model. If you order 2 or more identical designs, the startup cost becomes 5€/model.
Multicolor can be used for models with more than one color, which don’t need to be functional. The technique allows a lot of freedom in design. Typically, these are models you put on your desk or on a shelf such as architectural scale models, figures, and awards.
Z Corp printing technology is used to build your design with this material. The printer builds up the model from bottom to top, layer by layer. A roller puts a thin layer of powder on a platform and a print head places tiny drops of glue at specific locations, printing a thin layer of your model. The platform lowers and the roller spreads another layer of powder. Coloring is done by combining 4 different pre-colored glues to match the color requested. After the printing process the model is brittle, but is strengthened by putting it into superglue. A UV coating is sprayed on it to prevent de-coloration by sunlight.
