In this paper we address the colorimetric performance of a multicolor additive manufacturing process. A method on how to measure and characterize color performance of said process is presented. Furthermore, a method on predicting the color output is demonstrated, allowing for previsualization of parts prior to print. Results show that color prediction can be achieved with an average color difference error of ΔE*00 = 1.5 σ= 0.75, with similar order of magnitude as the literature defined threshold for „Just NoticeableDifference” (JND).
