New Opaque Color Materials
VeroUltra White and VeroUltra Black are here to introduce vibrant and refined colors to 3D printing. These opaque color materials achieve an incredible model appearance, providing accurate colors and top-notch quality, down to 2mm. Now, text and graphics you print will meet 2D graphics standards.
New VeroUltra White/WhiteS and VeroUltra Black were modified from the original materials for increased opacity. By leveraging these materials, you’ll achieve a shorter time-to-market, as your prototypes will better match your needs.
With opaque colors, you’ll get multi-material capabilities, that will achieve perfect color and transparency to mimic any model part. Thanks to its high contrast abilities, opaque colors will also be able to mimic natural materials with detailed textures, like bark and glass.
Use Case: Toy Company
Before opaque colors were available, a company that made complex, colorful plastic toys, usually relied on hand-painting, over-modeling, and stickers to prototype parts. These parts use various skin tones, which have to be specific for store lighting and during the design process.
The company used traditional prototyping, but this was a time-intensive process. To achieve accurate skin tones, they required colors to be mixed and hand-painted. Previous PolyJet materials couldn’t reach the necessary accuracy. Still, traditional prototyping was time-consuming, expensive, and prone to error.
Now, with the new opaque colors, the company was able to produce detailed parts efficiently. Multiple parts can now be achieved with a single print, in just a few hours. The company’s prototypes can have multiple colors, textures, graphics, and sharp details – even on thin areas. With 3D printing, the process is highly repeatable.
