Multi-Colour Pricing Estimator


The cost of printing in Multi-Colour Plaster is primarily based on the overall material volume of your part, i.e. the amount of material used. We recommend you Send Us the File first so we can view the quality of the data and then we will produce an accurate quote for the cost and production time. If you are confident that the volume of your model is correct and fits within the recommendations of our design guide, then you can estimate the cost by using our Multi-Colour Estimator below.

Multi-Colour Information


Multi-Colour 3D printing is perfect for producing 3D models with great speed and visual quality in either white or multicolour. This material is best suited for display purposes, such as conceptual models, sculptures,

The material is primarily made from a plaster powder, often referred to as Sandstone, resulting in a fine granular surface. It can be a fragile material depending upon the delicacy of your design, so we strongly suggest that you follow our Design Guide before you consider this material. Full photographic colour can also be applied to these models, allowing you to make use of a full range of tones, textures and colour patterns.

3D Prints in Multi-Colour are generally not suitable for moving or functional parts.

We use official 3D systems materials and cut no corners in order to provide the highest quality Multi-Colour and white models. Our trained and experienced technicians operate these machines for optimum efficiency and part quality.

Multi-Colour 3D printing is a process that builds three dimensional parts using CMYK inkjet print heads that apply a liquid binder to each 0.1mm layer of white plaster powder. Each printed section bonds to the layer below while all the loose powder provides all the necessary support for the build. Once the process is complete, we vacuum and recycle the loose powder around the object, as well as any traces of powder still adhered to the model. We then penetrate the part with a Cyonoacrylate (superglue) to harden the model, making it more suitable for handling, and the colours more saturated.
