This blog post will show you how to color 3D-printed parts using very simple dye. You can dye most SLS and SLA printed parts with off-the-shelf dyes to create a wide spectrum of colors and finishes. When it comes to engineering-grade 3D printers, you are often limited in choosing a color for the final product. Since most engineering materials focus on mechanical properties over aesthetics, you are often left with a white or gray part. [...]
