3D Printing Certification

Experiment with Impression Mapping and Shade 3D Printing


With Graphic Mapping with coloration mixing, we’re taking multi-product 3D printing certification to the following stage.

[IMPORTANT NOTICE: To use this feature you need to update Voxelizer software to version 1.4.18 or later]

We’re repeatedly attempting to force ahead the restrictions of desktop 3D printing certification and employ the entire probable of ZMorph multitool 3D printer. Our latest experiments with ZMorph 2. SX led to innovations in two-content printing with Dual Pro toolhead that before long will enable you to set vibrant textures and visuals on your prints.

Experiments with Picture Mapping

New Image Mapping performance in Voxelizer software enables placing 2D visuals on 3D objects and printing them with Dual Pro toolhead. Shade mixing system used in the fabrication course of action is the upcoming step in between two colour and comprehensive-colour 3D printing certification.

Two-Material 3D Printing With Image Mapping and Color Blending on ZMorph 2.0 SX

Now, no other 3D printing certification computer software or 3D printer achieves these kinds of amount of particulars in graphic mapping with shade blending. We ended up equipped to successfully print patterns, textures and full photographs of cats and even the famous Mona Lisa painting.

How does it function? Your image is pasted all around the object, so the 3D shape requirements to be taken into account when making ready the 2D file. Through printing, the Dual Pro extruder switches and blends filaments primarily based on a quantity of shades set up. It also hides the switches inside the item instead of creating an artifact or outline all-around it. The item itself is substantially thicker but this allows attaining more aesthetic and specific surfaces.

You can use this aspect appropriate now, just simply click the graphic mapper icon in Voxelizer software package to start. Proper now, the Graphic Mapping offers 5 presets of designs, together with flower pot, vase, and twisted pipes. You can edit shapes of these presets and their dimensions, but soon you will be able to spot images on any 3D object that you want.

Approaching improvements

Right now you can edit the item but not the printing set up which is established at the ideal speed, layer peak, and width. Coloration blending proper now delivers up to 8 shades and works with PLA filaments only. This software program, colour, and materials possibilities will all be expanded as we continue to tweak and boost the Picture Mapping element.

We system to introduce gradual colour mixing and the means to paste photographs on any 3D object, so you’ll be ready to manufacture really exceptional multi-content and multicolored objects with it.

Future apps of Graphic Mapping

Picture mapping and color blending both equally have a wonderful possible for arts, crafts and even speedy prototyping as prints designed with Twin Professional toolhead will be in a position to emulate sure textures and colors devoid of any submit-generation.

Dual Pro toolhead

To use impression mapping and coloration blending you will need to have Twin Professional toolhead, which is an superior single-nozzle remedy for two-materials 3D printing certification.  Once you have the toolhead, this new option can be used on all ZMorph machines with the most current firmware set up. Some of our customers currently built some great prints on their ZMorph 2. S equipment, despite the fact that the best top quality is achievable on ZMorph 2. SX, many thanks to the Shut Loop Program.
