Polish company OVE plans to introduce a full color FDM 3D printer and a full-colour DLP 3D printer which utilise OVE's patent-pending 3D color printing technology, Tomek Płuciennik, CEO of OVE 3D Printers said on Thursday.

"Basically it's all about modified UV-curable CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key) inks and resin/ink chemistry." Płuciennik told 3ders.org. "We call our printers multi-process, because 3D and 2D printing processes are used alternately, to create full colour 3D layer. There is similarity with ZCorp 3D color printing process, but the difference is that our ink is not a "binder". When not printing in colour it will be just standard FDM or SL DLP printer."

The OVE's FDM 3D printer will use the properties of a colour-taking filament and specialty inks. And the DLP printer will be "the fastest and the most accurate full-colour 3D printers on the market and will be available at a reasonable price." said Płuciennik. "It will offer possibilities which so far have been reserved for devices from the highest price shelf."

The startup has filed patent applications for both 3D printers and their methods of colour 3D printing. "We've done a few prototypes, which proved our assumptions and patent claims. We're working on production prototypes, along with software." Płuciennik said.

OVE doesn't want to provide more details and price tag at the moment. "We don't want to degrade the reception, by showing something that is less than great." Płuciennik told us. "3D printing is our passion and we want to spread this emotion to others, not only professionals. In order to do that, the price tag should be acceptable for prosumer market. We belive we found the most affordable solution for full-colour 3D printing."

"We have other patent news, but we'll announce them in about a month and half. By this time there should be more solid data about our printers."

I dont believe it is possible, totally the wrong approach to the subject, the problem with UV resins is they never stop reacting to UV, so they always discolour and degrade over time, you would have to keep your items in the dark to keep them in good condition.

Look up OVE, cant find anything at all about them.

yeah, give as a proof, "working on prototype" means "we don't have anything"

How they are planning to color undersides of overhangs?
