Color 3D Printing is ideal for a variety of applications including the creation of prototypes and for presentations needing color to better represent the final product. Fathom is a service provider of color 3D printing —typical applications include design prototypes for educational, architectural, industrial, geospatial, arts & entertainment, and healthcare needs.
Color 3D printing is ideal for a variety of applications including the creation of prototypes and for presentations needing color to better represent the final product. Our color 3d printing capabilities produce parts in over 500,000 colors, textures, gradients, transparencies and durometers. Prototypes can be created with a variety of characteristics so they look, feel and function like real products.
Parts of complex geometries are built layer-by-layer directly from 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) data with corresponding colors. Automatic color mapping from your design software lets you create photo-realistic 3D printed models. Prototypes can be also be created using any combination of rigid, flexible, transparent or opaque materials. Models can be produced in full color which would otherwise require painting and finishing. Additionally text labels, logos and images can be directly printed onto models. Minimal to no finishing steps are required like painting, sanding, or assembly.
High resolution realistic 3D printed models with precise details can be created allowing complex geometries with detailed features to be achieved, such as a thin wall on a mechanical prototype or a railing on an architectural model. Color 3D printed parts have excellent visual properties with good surface quality.
