Why 3D Printers Can't Print in Color?
95 percent of 3D Printers have a single print tip, so they can only produce with a single color or material. Therefore, you can colorize monochrome prints by performing manual painting, or you can create prints in maximum 2 colors with 3D Printers with 2 print tips.
What does multi-colour-material 3D Printing mean?
Co Print allows you to create 3D Prints using filaments with 7 different colors and properties. Likewise, you can combine filaments with different properties (soluble filament, wood pla, etc.). In this way, the models you create turn into multi-colored-material prints. Existing 3D printers do not have filament replacement units that allow using multiple filaments together. Therefore, we would like to point out that Co Print is actually an equipment that increases the capacity of your 3D Printer.
Can Co Print work with my 3D Printer?
We designed Co Print to work with all Desktop 3D Printers working with FDM technology. Co Print is compatible with different types of 3D Printers as it does not require any hardware changes or modifications.
What does the Cleaning Tower do?
We currently use the popular Prusa Slicer slicer software to generate .gcode files for multicolor and multi-material prints. Prusa Slicer creates a cleaning tower at each filament change to clean the part of the previous filament in the nozzle and ensure flawless color transitions.
How does Co Print communicate with the 3D printer?
While performing color printing with Co Print 3D printer, it receives the information of the filament change moment by touching the limit switch of the 3D printer. It takes the information of the filament sequence to be changed from the loaded SD Card file and provides color printing without any problems with this information.
How to Create Multicolored Design Files?
Multi-colored designs do not consist of a single file, each part of the design with a different color is a different design file. When these designs are output from design applications as assembled to each other, when they are loaded into slicing applications, they can be prepared for printing as assembled and adhered to each other.
