It is possible to print separate parts of your model using different materials and/or colours. Simply supply a separate 3D model file for each piece.

Description

Powder printing is perfect for printing models and figurines as they can be printed in full 3D colour. These models are very detailed, however they are quite fragile and are not designed for everyday handling. 3D powder models are created by printing a binding material and coloured ink, layer by layer into a gypsum based powder.

Available Colours

Multi-coloured

Description

Paper printing is a full colour paper option where pre-printed paper is cut and glued into shape. The 3D paper printing option is sturdier than the 3D powder printing option however you do sacrifice the detail of the print. As this model is made from paper it shouldn’t be exposed to water.

Available Colours

Multi-coloured
