After many months of testing we're finally ready to start offering a brand new full-color 3D printing option to customers using our full body 3D scanners to run their 3D printed figurine businesses: Full-color Resin 3D Printing. It's an exciting time to be in the 3D printed figurine business as this new type of 3D printing could open up brand new use cases that just weren't possible before with full-color sandstone 3D printing. In this post we'll explain how it works, discuss benefits of full-color resin over full-color sandstone and give you more details about the beta program.
Major changes are afoot in the color 3D printing market with multiple new technologies expected to become widely available this year. A quick rundown on everything that is happening: HP is expected to launch their new color 3D printer; the Mimaki 3DUJ-553 full-color 3D printer is expected to become more widely available; and additional software updates are expected to come to the Stratasys J750 color 3D printer that will help enhance color quality. In this post we’ll go over how each of these color 3D printers work, show sample 3D prints and discuss where each fits into the broader market compared to one another. Here is quick summary:
