With Color on Demand we have already matched hundreds of colors. We have published the RAL references (over 100 already) online which can readily be ordered. But we can match more than only RAL colors. Some customers send us physical references, others want a Pantone reference matched. The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a worldwide standard, used in many applications and industries. There are many series of colors in the Pantone system and the one we focus on today is the skin tone color:
The Pantone reference is 5Y02 SP from the Pantone SkinTone Guide. With skin tone references 3D printed prosthetics are no longer limited to the basic colors, or subject to extensive post-processing like painting. For today’s print we used the Kwawu 2.0 Prosthetic Hand by Jacquin Buchanan, who is specialized in designing and printing prosthetics. You should definitely check out his website, One Monk Clapping.
We printed this hand on the Makerbot Replicator 2, with a 0.2mm layer height and at a print temperature of 195C.
By using skin tone colors designers and people wearing prosthetics have more options than ever beyond the standard color palette.
