3D Color

SLS and MultiJetFusion parts dyeing machine

Developed by a large distributor of HP MJF 3D printers, in response of requests to dye the 3D printed parts in black, the 3DColor dyes very easily the parts printed in 3D in PA 12, PA 11, etc...

Thanks to its touch screen and its wide range of pre-programmed shades, the machine can dye up to 2 kgs of parts in one go, in its 78 litre tank.
They come out with a uniform color quality, and dyed up to 200µm deep, without affecting the properties of the parts.

Increases life of 3D printed parts

The 3DColor is using a very easy and yet reliable technique : water deying!


  • RELIABLE : No chemical process, no complex manipulation! The 3DColor machine is built to last : steel mecano-welded structure & stainless steel basket. The parts are dyed into colored water, and the machine can clean itself (not when using the black color). As easy as that. And it can keep running for years.


  • SAFE : All the system is secured to avoid any risk of water splash outside the machine. The parts come out with no change in the mechanical properties.


  • ECONOMICAL : Since the 3DColor uses water, and not chemical process, the running cost is very low.


  • SMART : The 3DColor comes with pre-loaded programs in the user's interface and you're free to add your own ones.

What kind of parts can this machine dye?

All small & large parts 3D printed using plastic powder (typically SLS and MJF). The 3DColor system is ideal to dye parts in black, and in about 15 other colors.

What about bio-compatible parts ?

The 3DColor is not using a chemical process, the parts are 'washed' with colored water. Therefore, the parts are not contaminated during the dyeing process. With the machine, a MSDS report is provided with the user manual.

How deep can the machine dye ?

Does it consume lots of water ?
