3D printing using different colours on the same object can be a little tricky on some 3D printing systems. But a new 3D printer created by ORD Solutions called the RoVa4D has been specifically built to provide an easy and affordable way to create objects by blended filament colours to create a wealth of different colour options.
The RoVa4D 3D printer provides a 12 x 12 x 12 printing area and allows you to print using 5 different colours at the same time. Watch the video below to learn more about its colour blending capabilities.
The development team behind the new RoVa4D colour blending 3D printer explain more about its inspiration, design and functionality.
In 2013 we ran a successful Kickstarter for our first 5 extruder 3D printer the MH3000. We received a lot of feedback from our awesome user community and in 2014 we launched our second successful Kickstarter for the RoVa3D – the updated version of our 5 extruder system. We delivered every 3D printer pledged for from both of those campaigns!! And we’ve since sold many hundreds more of the RoVa3D and had 2 more years of market feedback from our growing customer base. Well, you’ve spoken and we’ve listened again. We are here today to introduce you to our 6th generation 3D printer: The RoVa4D
The RoVa4D works by extruding separate cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and white filaments into a single hot end where they are blended together and deposited from a single nozzle. This works similarly to your inkjet printer at home except that we also need white filament, since we aren’t printing on paper. This lets you print unlimited colors in a single print. The materials can be printed with a gradient or as hard separations. The printer switches colors by purging the difference in a little bin (just like your inkjet) or to reduce the waist the transition can happen inside the infill area of the print provided that it’s large enough. The RoVa4D has 3 separate hot ends. One is capable of printing in any color, hue, tone, tint or shade. The second one is dedicated to flexible materials like Ninjaflex, and the third one is dedicated to dissolvable support material. If you want you can switch between all three during a single print.
