Dyeing SLS parts

David Cameron, Andy Boucher

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This booklet reports on the development of dyeing techniques used to colour 3D printed selective laser sintered [SLS] parts. We present a step-by-step guide on the dyeing process we have developed, with the aim to share our learning so others may use and develop this process further. Preceding this, we provide a background to the people and studio involved in the work and our reasons for developing this process. Our intention with this publication is simply to share our learning with other groups interested in dyeing SLS. We learnt a lot by piecing information together from disparate sources, but found it challenging to source knowledge of this process at all. We hope that by sharing our practice in a downloadable, printable guide, this knowledge can be more easily transferred into workshops, studios and makers everywhere.
