Formlabs tests Computational Hydrographic Printing technique for coloring 3D printed objects

One of the major challenges that 3D printing poses for manufacturers and hobbyists alike is how to apply colors to surfaces. The non-flat, often complex objects that are produced can prove difficult to cover with paint or color textures. One method used to apply these extra touches to the finished object is known as hydrographics. Back in 2015, a group of developers came up with an ingenious way of refining the hydrographics technique, making use of computer modelling in order to apply more complex textures and color patterns. While the authors haven’t released their project to the market yet, […]
