The simple and affordable way to dye SLS or MJF parts

The 3DChimera team originally built this system for in-house use to meet the demands of our customers who needed parts dyed black.  Due to unprecedented demand, we have refined the system to offer to anyone looking to dye SLS or MJF parts quickly, easily and with repeatable results every time.

One Touch 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! When the cycle is complete, you 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.
