New Full Color 3D Printer

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey guys,

Have any of you tried to create your custom action figures through 3D printing? How about prototypes?

There's this new 3D printer out by XYZprinting that does full color prints. It uses CMYK inkjet tech to add color to every layer of PLA filament.

Check it out: https://www.techcrunch.com/2017/08/31/xyzpr ... d-printer/

What do you think?

I had a head 3D printed for one of mine. It used a resin filament, though. Came out pretty nice!

Now that's something I'd be interested in

I looked up my order from when I got it and according to the receipt, this is the printer he used. (Settings: PLA, 300μm, Black. Not high detail resin like I had thought. Whoops!) Still an expensive machine, but a far cry from $3,000.

That said, you can get 3D prints without having to buy a 3D printer. I went through this service and my print was only $20. Would've been less, but my model was too big and he had to edit it for me to get it to print at the size I wanted.

I think an important question is, would anyone buy action figures if they all had the surface texture of a coral reef?

Edit
Damn, I think that sounded a lot dickier than I intended lol

I looked at the da vinci mini, the prints look way better at Excellent setting, and it's only 300 bucks, so it's hard to justify the price on this one.

I will say though, would be nice to be able to print a figure's joints in the proper colors to eliminate paint rub. Also, printing flexible things like hoods would be great
