The technology behind Multicolor
Multicolor is a 3D printing material that enables you to print models directly in more than one color. And get ready to be amazed: we can print up to 10 million different colors!
The printing process involves applying successive layers of curable ink on top of each other until the desired design is completed. Water-soluble support material is used to build overhanging elements and is removed after the printing process.
A better material for your full-color 3D prints
Multicolor offers brighter colors and stronger parts for your full-color 3D prints, with better surface quality. Because of the 3D printing process, some layers will be visible if you look closely.
Multicolor allows for higher precision and more detailed designs. The 3D prints can have thinner walls because the material is stronger.
What’s more, no extra support is needed for overhanging or thin parts because the models will be surrounded by support material. Look at the arms of the heart in the following image as an example of this.
