For many, multi-colored 3D prints have become the holy grail of 3D printing. Creating 3D prints was once the purview of high-end color 3D printer models, whose cost was out of reach for the average consumer. Now, various options are available to create colorful 3D prints. These options are best broken down into two categories. The first is direct color 3D printing, where the color is derived from the filaments used in an FDM printer. The second category is indirect color printing, where color is applied from an external source to the filament during the printing process.
Getting your prints to stick to your build plate is one of the most important aspects of FDM 3D printing. We decided to test some cheap 3D print bed adhesion stickers that we found online to see if they're worth using.
