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.

Typical Use

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.

Technology

Technology

ColorJet Printing 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.

Additional Information

  • A vivid, multicolor model is so much more appealing than a single color model. Since 3D software packages are more frequently outputting multicolor models, multicolor is a great choice to make.
  • The model needs to be handled with care. Even after reinforcing the model with superglue, the model stays fragile, and has problems absorbing shocks.
  • Take into account that the walls of your model need to be 1.7 to 2 mm thick and the details of imprints can be 0.8 to 1 mm. Long tiny features like pins, thin fingers, tiny hair points or antennas that are 0.8 to 1.7 mm and that stick out might not survive.
  • The surface is granular but smoothed thanks to the UV coating.
