You’ve created a beautiful 3D printed part? Make it colorful! We are launching today new paint options for our White Plastic, available with two different finishes. Check them out, try them out, let us know if you like them!
Add color without losing details!
Our new painting option, exclusively available for white plastic as of today, will allow you to give colors to the parts you’ve created with us. Spread on the material using a spray gun, the colors have a uniform and smooth surface and maintain every detail of the printed object. The paint layer only adds 200 microns of thickness on average.
Colors that will last
Unlike dye, paint is very durable and retains the same shade without losing intensity. Since we use a cellulose paint, there is no risk once it dries of staining clothing or your skin. This makes it suitable for all uses.
However, the paint, even though it is ideal for prototypes and exhibits, is not designed for mechanical parts, since it may wear or clear when scratched repeatedly.
What new colors are available?
Fourteen new colors have been added with each having a specific reference so you can be sure to get the one you want.

Which finishing options are available for painted parts?
For every color, we offer two different finishes:
- Matte : the surface is cleaned and keeps a matte appearance.
- Glossy : your object is coated with a varnish to give it a shiny appearance and protect it from UV.
Which technical specificities should we take into account if we want a painted object?
All the required information are available on our website, on our painting process page. To learn about all the other finishes we have at Sculpteo, we recommend that you visit our page on finding the finish that suits the best your 3D print.
