Technology Overview Color 3D Printing

Until recently, the rule in 3D printing was often, "As long as it's black." But times change, and so has the world of 3D printing. In our latest blog article, we take a look at the exciting evolution of monochrome and full-color 3D printed parts, and the innovative technologies behind them. Learn how you can produce high-quality single-color parts, whether it's by choosing the right raw material or using innovative dip-dyeing techniques. Also discover the world of "full-color" components, from cost-effective solutions to high-end technologies.


The properties of 3D printed plastic parts

This article provides an overview over the general properties from parts produced with industrial 3D printers. Learn about the surface properties, mechanic strength, tolerances and other characteristics of additive manufactured plastic parts.


HP Jet Fusion vs. Lasersintern

When HP announced the key features of their new 3D printer ‘Multi Jet Fusion 4200’ in 2014, they promised it would introduce a new kind of additive technology, which would print parts that were more accurate and stronger than those produced by FDM and laser sintering printers – and at ten times the speed. Now that the HP Multi Jet Fusion 4200 has been on the market for a few months, it is time to take an in-depth look at the most important characteristics of both technologies and most importantly, at the quality of the 3D printed parts that they are capable of producing.


Technological approaches in 3D printing

A large number of technologies have now been "collected" under the term 3D printing. These processes differ in terms of the source material used and the processing method. However, the technologies are often based on the same basic principles. Consequently, not every new process is necessarily a 'revolution', but usually a further development or modification of existing 3D printing technologies.


Direct Metal 3D Printing: Process, Technology and Application

Sales figures and the willingness of industries to invest in additive manufacturing of metal prove that this technologies possibilities and importance are growing: Investments: A study of KMPG, an auditing company in Germany, shows that nearly 25% of managers in metal sectors invest in additive manufacturing and 27 % of industries which already have such ...



Rapid prototyping (RP) is currently on everyone's lips, with many researchers saying that the technology is one of the defining megatrends of the near future. But what does this term actually mean? The term rapid prototyping has established itself as a generic term for many 3D printing applications.


What is a 3D printer?

The term 3D printing refers to additive (build-up) manufacturing methods in which a machine builds up an object layer by layer. No tools are required for this process. The basic prerequisite for performing 3D printing is the existence of a digital 3D model.
