3D printing in full colour

3D Printing 2017 Report
The da Vinci Color is XYZprinting's first FDM desktop 3D printer with true color technology achieved through the combination of inkjet and 3D printing technology. By using CMYK inkjet technology, droplets of ink attach itself to the color-absorbing PLA filament, allowing the da Vinci color to create prints of various colors by combining the dye droplets on the filament. The da Vinci Color was designed with consumer accessibility, creativity and ease-of-use in mind.
 
The da Vinci Color's inkjet technology provides full-color prints, it also provides high speed and efficient printing, ensuring that users will get their prints quickly and in professional quality.
 
XYZprinting's new material - CPLA (Color PLA) allows for the absorption of inkjet droplets, which is what makes the da Vinci Color able to print full-color prints. The CPLA filament is also sturdier than regular PLA, perfect for tooling, adhesion, and impact resistance. It's versatility gives users the creative freedom to incorporate the material in any number of projects.
 
"With its 3DColorJet technology, the da Vinci Color is a breakthrough in 3D printing technology as it provides full colour spectrum accuracy at an affordable, small business-friendly price, that is unmatched by any other colour 3D printer in the market," said Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting.
