SLS & MJF Dye System
The simple and affordable way to dye SLS or MJF parts.
Meet the 3DChimera Dyeformer
The Dyeformer was designed to take the complexity out of dyeing 3D printed parts. Gone are the days of guessing the perfect temperature, time, and dye formulation. With the perfectly portioned 3DC Dye Mix, the Dyeformer is able to dye your SLS and MJF parts repeatably for 30 days with a single button press.
Get even color everytime
Take the guess work out of dyeing. The 3DC Dyeformer uses 3DChimera's propritary liquid dye 3DC Dyeformer Dye Mix that is optimized to work with PA12 nylon parts. The 3DC SLS & MJF Dye system takes the guesswork out of getting your SLS or MJF parts to an even jet black color and is specially formulated to dye parts without streaking or splotches.
One Button Operation
The 3DC Dyeformer comes pre-programmed with the ideal temperature, flow rate and time to dye PA12 parts. After the initial setup, you simply drop in your parts, hit start and walk away...the system does the rest! After an hour, the cycle is complete and the system chimes, letting you know it is time to remove your parts and place on the drying rack.
For Parts Large and Small
The internal tank dimensions are 11.5 x 19.5 x 6in for some huge SLS parts! For smaller parts, the custom stainless steel basket fits inside the tank perfectly with dimensions of 16 x 8 x 4in, for a volume of over 500 in^3!
How does it work?
The proprietary 3DC Dyeformer Dye Mix is combined with water and heated to a precise temperature, which helps to relax the polymer strands of nylon to permanently absorb the dye. After the process is complete, parts are left to dry and the dye remains in polymer.
