ColorJet printing (CJP) is a 3D printing process that uses a powder material, usually plaster or starch-based, which is bound together using a liquid adhesive. The printer applies a layer of powder and selectively binds it using a printhead that jets the liquid adhesive onto the powder bed. The process is repeated layer by layer until the object is complete. The final object is a monochrome or full-color model depending on the printer’s capability. The technology is typically used for creating full-color models of architectural or industrial design concepts, sculptures, medical models, and visual aids for education.


  1. Architectural and Industrial Design: CJP can create full-color models for visualizing architectural or industrial design concepts.
  2. Medical Models: CJP can create realistic, full-color models of body parts or organs for medical education, research, and surgical planning.
  3. Sculptures and Artwork: CJP can create intricate, full-color sculptures and artwork.
  4. Education: CJP can produce full-color visual aids for teaching or demonstrations.


  1. Full-color capability: CJP is capable of producing models with a full range of colors, making it suitable for creating realistic prototypes and visual aids.
  2. High accuracy and resolution: CJP can produce highly detailed and accurate models, enabling the creation of complex geometries.
  3. Low cost of materials: CJP uses inexpensive plaster or starch-based powders as the raw material, which reduces the overall cost of the process.
  4. Fast printing speed: CJP can produce models relatively quickly compared to some other 3D printing technologies.


  1. Brittle parts: The parts produced by CJP can be brittle and fragile, making them unsuitable for applications where high strength or durability is required.
  2. Limited range of materials: CJP can only use powder materials that can be bound with a liquid adhesive, limiting the range of materials that can be used.
  3. Surface finish: CJP produces models with a slightly rough surface finish, which may require additional post-processing for some applications.
  4. Limited build size: The build size of CJP printers is typically smaller compared to some other 3D printing technologies, which limits the size of parts that can be produced.
