I started my 3D business with monochromatic 3D printers, but was struggling to keep up with demand due to the amount of post processing involved to add color. We examined a powder based full-color 3D printer, but found that the material was too fragile and the color faded within one year, so we decided it wasn't the right option for us.
The introduction of 3DUJ-553 eliminated the need for manual coloring work and made it possible to create molded objects in a short time with materials that had rich color expression.

We were looking for 3D printers capable of outputting high definition 3D data created in the office for use in explaining construction processes to our clients.
The model prototypes were extremely popular and we successfully landed requests for proposals. As 3D printers can reproduce models cheaply in diverse scales, they are better than outsourcing hand-crafted models, and we are confident they will become indispensable as effective business tools.

Although the company already had a full-color 3D printer, the plaster-based type needed to go through processes that almost required artisan skills such as polishing and re-coloring for modeled objects before they become products.
3DUJ-553 has enabled more than 10-million color representation that is fine in details, in addition to real, delicate expression that needs no re-coloring. As the support material is water-soluble, we can remove it easily by soaking the object in water, which allows us to work on details to the last minute, enabling a wider range of expression than ever before.

Although we already had a plaster-based full-color 3D printer, we did not accept orders with colors because it was extremely difficult to finish the works with colors satisfactory to clients. However, our valued client requested us to deliver figures finished with colors.
3DUJ-553 is highly valued by clients for its excellent color reproducibility. Because there is no need to provide coloring experts and thus 3D-printed products can be delivered as finished items, the company has propelled the business a step ahead without making unnecessary investment.

We used to mainly create figures with a plaster-based 4-color printer that enables color printing, but came to want to challenge a full-color 3D print with a higher definition.
It is highly received by clients dealing in 3D modeling artworks as well. Mimaki's "3DUJ-553" enabled us to demonstrate what the advance 3D print is like. Introduction of "3DUJ-553" also had a positive impact on the overall company.
