About Full Color Mimaki

Using the UV curing inkjet process, the UV ink (CMYK, White, Clear) is cured layer by layer. This can produce objects with more than 10 million different colors. Final parts can satisfy professionals’ exacting requirement to make full color and fine modeling of high details, for example, figures, 3D maps and architecture mock-ups. And the post processing like over coating and attachment of screws is also able to apply to an object after printing.

Design Guidelines

Bounding Box

Bounding Box Max
508 x 508 x 305 mm

Bounding Box Min
2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 mm

The bounding box is a 3D imaginary outline of a box that encloses the smallest area occupied by your model. Your model must be within the minimum and maximum bounding box sizes. If the size of the model is close to the maximum bounding box, then the printing orientation will be restricted.

Walls

Supported Wall Thickness Min
1mm
Unsupported Wall Thickness Min
1mm
A supported wall is connected at least on two sides of the wall, while an unsupported wall is connected only on one side of the wall. Walls that do not meet the minimum requirements may not survive printing and cleaning processes. Additionally, models may still be rejected based on the wall geometry of the model. Please consider the size of your model and reinforce the walls or add support structures as needed as minimum guidelines will not always be adequate for large models.

Wires

Supported Wires Min
0.8mm
Unsupported Wires Min
1mm
A wire is a circular, rectangular or even triangular feature that is thinner in its unconnected directions than its length. A supported wire is connected at least on two sides of the model, while an unsupported wire is connected on one side of the model. Wires that do not meet the minimum requirements may not survive printing and cleaning processes. Additionally, models may still be rejected based on the wire geometry of the model. Please consider the size of your model and reinforce the wires or add support structures as needed as minimum guidelines will not always be adequate for large models.

Details

Details Min Embossed
1mm
Details Min Engraved
1mm
For text, the ratio between width and depth, should be 1:1 and sans-serif fonts are preferred for line weight consistency.

Escape Holes

Single Escape Hole Diameter (Min)
3mm
Multiple Escape Hole Diameter (Min)
3mm
Escape holes are necessary to empty the support material of a hollow model. Two escape holes at the opposite ends of the model is optimal for the support removal process. Please consider the size of your model and make the escape holes bigger or add more escape holes as needed as minimum guidelines will not always be adequate for large models.
A single escape hole at the end of a cavity will not allow material in the corners near the escape hole to fully escape. So we recommend multiple escape holes at both ends of the cavity.

Clearance

Min
0.4mm Hole - 1 mm
Clearance is the space between two individual parts in a model. If the space among the individual parts do not meet the minimum clearance, then parts can fuse together or can be difficult to clean. This is important for movable pieces like hinges, gears, etc.

Interlocking & Enclosed Parts

Interlocking
Yes

Enclosed
Yes

Accuracy

Accuracy Parts smaller than 20mm: 0.1mm Parts larger than 20mm: 0.05 + 0.25% of longest axis, with a maximum of 0.4mm
For example: a product with dimensions of 50x50x100 mm can be 0.15 mm + 0.0015*100 mm = 0.3 mm bigger or smaller in any direction.
