Multicolor (VisiJet PXL) is a multi-purpose composite material for ColorJet that delivers tough parts with excellent resolution and color accuracy. It is perfect for form, fit and functional testing, or for concept modeling, visual presentation and sales demonstrations. VisiJet PXL can produce parts directly printed in numerous vivid colors, based on a CMYK system.

Technical Specifications

Standard lead time Minimum of 7 working days (online & offline orders)
Standard accuracy ± 0.2%
Minimum wall thickness 1.7 – 2 mm
Layer thickness 0.1 mm
Maximum part dimensions The maximum build envelope is 250 x 380 x 200 mm (online & offline orders)
Surface structure Unfinished ColorJet parts typically have a grainy surface. As the parts are brittle when they come of the machine, they undergo a curing process to maximize strength

How Does ColorJet Work?

ColorJet works by depositing a colored, liquid binder onto thin layers of powder. A roller mechanism spreads an even layer of white powder, the core material, across the build platform. The print heads then selectively jet the binder onto the powder to bind the subsequent layer of core material. The liquid binder serves the dual task of fusing the layers and coloring the part in a multitude of shades.
