    Hi there, I am wondering if 3D Printers can allow me to print phone cases with logo's and such?
    Like if I wanted a picture on a phone case, I can 3D Print it with the colors and everything.

    If not, is there a printer out there that would allow me to print onto phone cases?

    thank you very much!

    If you're referring to photographic quality picture printing? No.

    You can do designs and basic 2-4 color printing based on the printer and accessories you buy, but that's about it for consumer level printers.

    Theta-based printers can do 4 color printing but I believe that's about as many colors as 1 consumer level printer on its own can do.

    You can also get a mosaic manufacturing "palette+" which lets a single extruder printer use up to 4 colors.
