Printing Method: 3DP (powder based)

The 3D printing method for our “Full Color Sandstone” material is powder-based, which uses no secondary material support structures and generates little to zero material waste.

Maximum Print Size Minimum Print Size Minimum Wall Thickness Print Resolution
15″ x 10″ x 8″ (381 x 254 x 203 mm) 1″ x 1″ x 1″ (25.4 x 25.4 x 25.4 mm) .09″ (2.3mm) .004″ (.1mm)

Material Characteristics:

Coarse, matte finish with a delicate feel. The default material is white, but our printer can also print in full CMYK color.

lookLook: Matte Finish. Prints are post-processed with a superglue treatment that makes colors extra vibrant.
feelFeel: Hard, rigid, and coarse. Best for presentation models and figurines. Not the best for functional products.
watertightWatertight?: No. Contact with water should be avoided as it may fades the colors of the print.
dishwashersafeDishwasher safe?: No. This material should not be placed in a dishwasher.
burgersafeFood safe?: No. This material should not be used with in contact with foodstuffs.
recyclingRecyclable?: No. However, the printing process generates zero material waste.

Design Rules:

Minimum wall thickness (supported wall)


A supported wall is a wall with connections on both sides.

Minimum wall thickness (unsupported wall)


An unsupported wall is a wall with a connection on only one side.

Minimum Embossed/Engraved Detail

.5mm high and wide

This determines the feature size possible when engraving or embossing within a structure.

Minimum Wire Diameter


A wire is an element where the length is more than 2x the width.

minimum clearance
Minimum Clearance


This is the distance between separate components so that they are not bound together.

Minimum Escape Hole Diameter


Escape holes allow for unbound powder material to escape from hollowed models.

Technical Rules:

Normals Must All be Unified

In the digital world, any surface will have a front and a back face. This surface orientation is called a “normal”. If two adjacent surfaces have different normal directions, this file input may confuse the 3D printer.

Models Must be “Water Tight”

This means that there are no holes in the shell of the model. All vertices for adjacent mesh faces must be connected.

wall thickness
Components Must Have Minimum Thickness

In order to successfully print and survive post processing, model components must have a minimum wall thickness.

To have a successful 3D printable file, digital geometry must satisfy the above criteria and if you would like to print in color, send your file as a .vrml instead of a .obj or .stl(.stl and .obj files do not contain any color information.)
