Shapeways is teaming with Mimaki in full-color 3D printing. Shapeways’ High Definition Full Color system uses a UV curing and inkjet process to cure the jetted material layer by layer on the Mimaki printer, relying on specific color profiles generated by characterization data. This can produce objects with more than 10 million different colors. Execellent shading, contrast, and fine detail are possible, including choices in terms of color gradients and texture.
Versatile post-processing options are available through Shapeways end-to-end digital manufacturing platform and purpose-built software. This material is used for full production products and parts.
Customers have access to instant quotes for the High Definition Full Color material through the software.
