Quick guide on multicolour 3D printing & How it works

Posted by Aaron Chen on

3D printing generally uses single colour in its model. Some 3D printing technology is limited to use only one colour because of the difficulties associated with getting multi-colour output using a filament or resin. Moreover, major issues were identified such as the difficulty of using single strands of filament.
