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.

Pricing Info

The pricing for Multicolor is based on model volume, which is the volume of your model used to calculate the material cost (mm³).

Additionally, a startup cost is applied to the price of your model. This is a fixed cost independent from the parameters of your model. For Multicolor, we also charge a minimum price per ordered piece. Unlike the startup cost, this cost vanishes when the price is higher than the minimum price.

If you order two or more copies of a model, the price automatically decreases because the preparation of multiple copies can be carried out more efficiently.

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.



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. The coloring is done by combining 4 different pre-colored types of glue to match the requested color. The surface can have almost any color since the printer prints up to 24-bit colors, equal to 16.7 million different colors.

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 decoloration 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.
  • If your 3D file doesn’t contain any color information, it will result in a slightly off-white/grayish print.
  • The resolution of the printer is 600 x 540 dpi.
  • 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.
