ColourJet Printing (CJP)

3D Print in colour of landscape

CJP – ColourJet Printing

An innovative 3D Printing process that produces full-colour, high-resolution models with exceptional accuracy. CJP is ideal for a wide range of applications, including colour engineering prototypes, product design validation, architectural models and detailed anatomical replicas. With CJP 3D Printing, Formero allows customers to visualise their concepts vividly and tangibly.

How does ColourJet Printing work?

Step 1: Layer-by-Layer Build
We begin by spreading the core material in thin layers over the build platform, meticulously controlled by a specialised roller. This forms the foundation of the 3D model, ensuring accuracy and structural integrity.

Step 2: Selective Colour Binding
Once a layer is in place, our state-of-the-art inkjet print heads selectively jet colour binders onto the core material. The interaction of the binders with the core causes it to solidify instantly, capturing the vivid colours and intricate details of your design.

Step 3: Building the Model
As each layer solidifies, the build platform gradually lowers, enabling the subsequent layers to be precisely spread and printed. This gradual process ensures that your final 3D model comes to life with astonishing realism, vivid colours, and exceptional clarity.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Colour Jet Printing (CJP) excels in crafting realistic visual models and prototypes, replete with fine details and authentic, true-to-life colours. This technology proves especially valuable for generating architectural models, consumer products, and projects with artistic implications.

Colour Jet Printing (CJP) predominantly utilises gypsum-based powder materials recognized for their proficiency in capturing colours and fine details with precision. These materials are particularly suitable for fabricating models that demand vivid and vibrant colouring.

While Colour Jet Printing (CJP) is primarily tailored for crafting visually captivating models, it can also generate functional prototypes, especially when the emphasis is on maintaining colour accuracy and aesthetics.

Colour Jet Printing (CJP) serves a variety of industries including architecture, product design, entertainment, and education. It’s particularly valuable for producing lifelike visual aids, marketing materials, and prototypes that require intricate designs to be showcased in vibrant full colour.

Indeed, Colour Jet Printing (CJP) materials tend to possess greater brittleness when compared with certain other 3D printing materials. While they stand out in terms of colour precision and visual allure, they can’t match the mechanical attributes of functional prototypes fabricated through alternate methods.
