|Post production coloring (TD/WD, pWSF) [message #52510] Sun, 12 August 2012 13:40 UTC
High shop owners,|
for my shop the most demanding need would be to have for my items some post production coloroing available (material detailed, polished WSF or FD).
Any other shop owner dealing with this question?
My practical constraints are:
- available color set (black, grey, silver, tan, olive)
- surface (glossy)
- coloring mechanism (most preferred sprayed)
- shipping (Shapeways ships to me as a shop owner, or to somebody who buys that. But how to deal with a post production office or a reseller)
(would like to have that in shapeways hand, but I also understand the constraints onm their side)
Anybody facing similar problems or has some solutions or practicable ways of woring in place?

You can dye the WSF yourself if none of the color options are available.
I have had success spray painting it too, but the results are better if it is dyed.
Some larger shop owners have all their models shipped to them first for coloring or post processing and then they ship onto their customers.
I hope that is helpful!
