Interested in dying a resin print?

Well, we’ve been working on prototypes involving soft flexible components for a client. Typically, these prints are clear and colorless. However, when one of our prints failed, we decided to experiment with dying a 3D print. After some research, we discovered that all we needed was some alcohol-based ink.

Since the resin is alcohol-based, the dye chemically bonds and doesn’t wear off like paint would. We were surprised at how easy and effective this technique turned out to be. Stay tuned as we share our experience with using alcohol-based ink to add color to clear resin prints, providing a simple yet effective solution for our prototypes.
