Color Jet Printing (CJP)
What is Color Jet Printing?
Color Jet Printing, or CJP, is a 3d printing process by 3D Systems that uses a core and a binder to create 3d objects. This process is popular for printing detailed, multi-color 3d parts for art, medical, consumer goods, architecture, and demonstration models. Parts can also be used as templates or masters patterns for metal castings. The final parts are brittle. Parts can be printed quickly for turnarounds of a couple days.
How does CJP work?
CJP uses a fine white powder and prints just like an inkjet color paper printer where it jets color and a thin binder to solidify the powder layer upon layer to create a 3d model. Parts are then hardened in post-processing.

MJF printers have platforms of up to 20” x 15” x 9” (500mm x 380mm x 230mm) and build parts at 0.004” layers.
- Level 1 – Quick Finish = Powder Removal & Hardener
- Minimum Wall Thickness = 0.040”
- Minimum Features Size = 0.040”
Tolerances = +/- 0.010” for first inch then +/- 0.005” per inch thereafter
