Color Jet Printing

ColorJet Printing (CJP) is an additive manufacturing technology which involves two major components – core and binder. The Core™ material is spread in thin layers over the build platform with a roller. After each layer is spread, color binder is selectively jetted from inkjet print heads over the core layer, which causes the core to solidify. The build platform lowers with every subsequent layer which is spread and printed, resulting in a full-color three-dimensional model. Whether printed with color or in standard white, parts can be additionally clear coated to add a hard smooth coating or wax coated to smooth out the surface finish.

How CJP Works

CJP is an additive layer-by-layer process. This 3D Printing technology rolls a thin layer of powder base onto a platform, followed by a print head depositing a colored binder agent to fuse and color the part.

After each layer of powder base has been colored with the liquid binder, another thin layer of base material is rolled across the model and the next color application begins. The 3D model takes shape building up on the Z axis. Once complete, the part is strengthened by curing and various finished can enhance and protect the models surface.

TOLERANCES

Most parts can be accurately produced within +/- .005″ first inch, +/- .002″ per additional inch.

BUILD ENVELOPE

CJP parts can be made up to 10 x 15 x 8″ in size, or multiple parts nested in a single build.

BEST APPLICATIONS

CJP parts are life-like in detail and provide outstanding color for models.
