Since the development of 3D printing technology, all major 3D printer manufacturers have focused their efforts on developing mixed-color 3D printing technology. It has an incomparable advantage in monochrome printing. It can print a variety of color models and give people a beautiful sensory enjoyment. , And can solve the problem of model limitation to a great extent, and can print various models.
At present, mixed-color 3D printers on the market mainly continue to print after power failure, and Anet Technology launched its self-developed mixed-color 3D printer as early as 2015, becoming a domestic manufacturer that has obtained relatively early patents related to mixed-color 3d printing technology.
Anet Technology mainly mixes colors through an extruder, uses different color materials based on the principle of three primary colors, uses single nozzle double feed nozzle technology, and is a new type of 3D printing technology developed by Anet Technology’s unique software algorithm control. The technology provides four modes of mixed color, two-color, layered color, and single color.
The advantage of this mixed-color 3d printing technology is that it is easier to maintain than the traditional dual-nozzle dual-feed, which effectively reduces maintenance costs. Provide users with a new 3d printing innovation experience. The traditional mixed-color 3D printing technology is realized by the function of continuous printing after power failure. There are many drawbacks. For example, the printed model will have obvious colors, which affects the user’s visual sensory experience.
In addition to the “extruder color mixing” scheme above, the color mixing 3D printing material scheme can also be used. After determining the color of the printing model, the corresponding 3D printing material is used and the corresponding 3D printing model is printed with a single nozzle 3D printer.
In addition to this, another solution is to adopt the “3d printing inkjet” solution. This solution is actually relatively simple, that is, during the 3d printing process, the inkjet printer will color the model at the same time. Its advantage is that the user can receive the finished model after printing, without the need to re-color and other later problems. But there is still color difference!
At present, in terms of combining these three color mixing and coloring technologies, the “extruder color mixing” scheme is relatively good. It can perform color mixing, layered color, and two-color printing, and it can effectively reduce costs and improve printing efficiency. A new experience. However, mixed-color 3d printing technology still has shortcomings, and users still cannot meet the needs of complex coloring requirements, and mixed-color 3d printing technology still has huge challenges.
