Abstract

The Stratasys J750 PolyJet printer is capable of printing full-color parts. However, little information is currently available about the effects of finish type and material color on color appearance of parts printed by the PolyJet process. In this study, the effects of finish type and material color on color appearance of PolyJet printed parts are investigated; two finish types (glossy and matte) and four material colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) are considered. The results suggest that the main effects of finish type and its interactions with material color are significant. Especially, the effects of finish type when material color is black are more significant among the material colors. These results would be valuable to users of the full-color PolyJet 3D printer.
