Full-Color Material Details


General Informations

The primary material used in CJP printing is a plaster-like powder. This powder serves as the build material where each layer is selectively solidified using a liquid binder. The plaster-like material used in CJP printing is designed to provide several key characteristics:

  1. Color Absorption:
    • The plaster-like material has the ability to absorb color from the liquid binder during the printing process. This feature allows for the creation of fully colored 3D models without the need for post-processing.
  2. Texture and Finish:
    • CJP printing results in models with a characteristic texture and finish, often resembling gypsum or plaster. This can contribute to the visual aesthetics of the printed objects.
  3. Structural Support:
    • The plaster-like material provides structural support during the printing process so no supports need to be removed after printing. Each layer is selectively bound by the liquid binder, allowing for the creation of intricate and detailed models.

Pro`s and Con`s


  • Full-Color Capability:
    • One of the primary advantages is the ability to produce fully colored 3D models. The plaster-like material efficiently absorbs color during the printing process, enabling vibrant and detailed visual representations.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing Finish:
    • CJP printing with plaster-like material results in models with a characteristic gypsum or plaster-like finish. This aesthetically pleasing texture enhances the overall appearance of printed objects.
  • Structural Support for Complex Models:
    • The material provides robust structural support during the printing of complex models. The selective binding of layers ensures the creation of intricate and detailed objects with stability.
  • Ideal for Visual Prototyping:
    • Plaster-like material is well-suited for visual prototyping where the combination of full-color capability and detailed texture is essential for accurately representing design concepts.
  • Versatility in Applications:

The material's characteristics make it versatile for various applications, including architectural models, artistic representations, educational models, and medical simulations, where both color and texture play a crucial role.


  • Fragility and Brittleness:
    • Objects printed with plaster-like material can be fragile and brittle. Care must be taken during handling and use, especially in applications where mechanical strength is a critical factor.
  • Sensitivity to Moisture:
    • Plaster-like materials are often sensitive to moisture, and exposure can impact their integrity. This requires proper storage conditions to prevent undesirable changes in the material properties.
  • Limited Mechanical Strength:
    • While suitable for visual prototyping and certain applications, plaster-like material may not possess the mechanical strength required for high-stress or load-bearing applications. It is essential to consider the material's limitations in mechanical performance.
  • Post-Processing Challenges:
    • Removing support structures or performing post-processing on objects printed with plaster-like material can be challenging. Intricate designs may require meticulous attention during support removal to avoid damaging the final print.
  • Limited Heat Resistance:
    • Plaster-like material may have limited heat resistance. Exposure to high temperatures can affect the structural integrity of the printed objects, making it less suitable for applications where heat resistance is crucial.
