IV. Accuracy and Color Rendering of 3D Printing
The image accuracy always remains limited compared to the original for technical reasons. Smaller details can sometimes not be displayed accurately or having a defect. Blurring and printing streaks may occur, as well as slight unevenness of the surface, e.g. in patterns on clothing, stains on animal fur, etc. The degree of image accuracy is the more reduced, the smaller the selected print size compared to the original.
The customer has the ability to choose the desired image accuracy by comparing 3D prints of different sizes with the corresponding template images. An exact color reproduction of the original image is not technically possible. The colors of 3D printers are usually different, especially paler than the original colors. Significant deviations arise for shiny, reflective or transparent fabrics. White surfaces usually become darker, black surfaces are of anthracite color.
V. Storage, durability and cleaning of 3D prints
The 3D prints are produced by the powder printing process from polymer gypsum and coated with synthetic resin. They are fragile and not waterproof. It should be fixed on solid ground with an adhesive / adhesive label. Any contact with water should be avoided. Figurines are not suitable for storage at temperatures less than 6 ° C and more than 39 ° C and at a relative humidity of less than 40% and more than 60%.
