3D printer manufacturer XYZprinting has announced the $3,000 Da Vinci Color: a fused filament fabrication 3D printer that offers full CMYK printing by incorporating inkjet printing into the build process.

The da Vinci Color offers almost unlimited colors through a proprietary process, called 3DColorJet. From the release:

The industry’s ultimate full-color 3D printer, XYZprinting’s 3DColorJet solution enables the da Vinci Color to mix and fire CMYK color droplets onto PLA filament for accuracy and precision. The printer’s technology achieves the full-color spectrum of 16 million color possibilities across printed layers in finished 3D products. The proprietary technology combines color detail, which has been perfected in inkjet printing, with advanced, professional 3D printing technology.

The build volume of this 3D printer is 7.9 in x 7.9 in x 5.9 inch and it features XYZprinting's hands-free auto calibration, EZ removable print bed, a 5-inch color LCD screen and a non-toxic filtration system.

Announced at IFA 2017, the da Vinci Color (MSRP $3499.95) is available now for preorder for USD $2,999.95. XYZprinting's da Vinci Color will be on display at IFA 2017, September 1 – September 6, at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds, Hall 13 Booth 102, Messedamm, Berlin.

What I see, it it lays down a layer of ink, then a layer of translucent filament. that would explain the lack of pigment on the final layers with very horizontal features (the hippo and mask). a final ink only pass was not incorporated to cover the final plastic layer. still, cool tech.

why? paint is cheap.

The mask and the green/purple sheep (?) have white areas horizontal to the printing surface where it looks like the inkjet coverage does not reach. This seems like a significant limitation.

If it works, then, I haven't been impressed in a while. Good job.
