Formlabs Announces Color Kit: 3D Print in Color on the Form 2
The first integrated color mixing solution for stereolithography 3D printing, Color Kit allows Formlabs customers to create their own Color Resin
SOMERVILLE, Mass., Dec. 05, 2017 – Formlabs, the designer and manufacturer of powerful and accessible 3D printing systems, today announced Color Kit, the first integrated color mixing solution for stereolithography (SLA) that enables custom color creation and 3D printing of colorful parts without the manual work of painting.
Part of Form X, Formlabs’ experimental product platform for advanced customers who want to explore the boundaries of what’s possible with desktop SLA, Color Kit offers 16 color recipes or the ability to mix any color using Formlabs’ Color Picker tool.
With the Form 2 3D printer and Color Kit, customers can 3D print parts in color and field test product concepts in shades that fit their environment and align with their brand identity.
“With Color Kit, anyone can mix their own Color Resin and print in a variety of colors with the high resolution and smooth surface finish SLA technology is known for,” said Marcelo Coelho, head of design at Formlabs. “For looks-like prototypes, concept models, and others parts where aesthetic is top priority, Color Kit enables product designers, engineers, and other professionals to print many models in one consistent color, right off the printer, without the additional work of finishing and painting.”
Each Color Kit Includes: A Color Base cartridge, five bottles of Color Pigment in Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, and White, syringes for easy measurement, and a Recipe Book. The pigments are mixed into the base material to create a full cartridge of Color Resin.
