How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

Full color 3D printing is the holy grail of 3D printing. To be able to 3D print an object in any color whatsoever with clear definition and no bleed would really make prototyping with 3D printing more valuable. If prototypes coming off the printer would look almost exactly like the final object, then the technology […]
