3D Printers are normally used to print mono-colored objects that may be prepared and painted later. But Fabbaloo reports that users might be adopting full colored printing to produce livelier objects.
A reason why mono-color printing is widely used is because the majority of 3D printers could only print using one color filament at a time. During the resurgence of the technology many printers were somewhat limited when it came to printing with different colors. A good amount of users still have to switch between filaments during prints to produce multi-colored objects.
Although as the technology matures and advances color printing is becoming a bit more available. 3D printers that are able to easily print multi-colored objects are being developed and some are available to purchase.
In their article Fabbaloo makes a case for color 3D printing and why more users should adopt it.
