A spot on colour match for consumer product prototypes

In this use case example, learn how to use Stratasys® VeroUltra™ colour 3D printing materials to create a realistic, multi-material consumer product prototype. Challenge Traditionally, to achieve a multi-material appearance the designer needed to mix new colours for each part, paint and then mask multiple times — which reduced the part’s tolerance and increased the risk for errors. The wooden portion of the ladle also required its own production process through CNC machining or incorporating a paint process on top of a 3D printed, single colour part. And because the wooden part needed to be sourced, there were variations between iterations. Solution for product prototypes Using Stratasys PolyJet™ 3D printing technology and VeroUltra family of opaque colour materials, this multi-material ladle could be created in…
