  • Patent number: 10723143
    Abstract: A method includes printing an image on substrate by a printhead using ultraviolet (UV) curable ink. The method includes selectively applying a first amount of UV radiation by a first region of a light source to a first area of the image after a first amount of time passes from printing the first area to form a first gloss level area having a glossy finish. The method also includes selectively applying a second amount of UV radiation by a second region of the light source to a second area of the image after a second amount of time passes from printing the second area to form a second gloss level area having a matte finish. At least one of the second amount of UV radiation is greater than the first amount of UV radiation and the first amount of time is greater than the second amount of time.

  • Publication number: 20180264737
    Abstract: According to one example, there is provided a method, in a three-dimensional printing system (100), of determining the thickness of a layer of build material formed on a build platform (104). The method comprises forming a layer of build material (402) on a base having predetermined color characteristics, measuring color characteristics of the deposited layer of build material, and determining, based on the measured color characteristics, the thickness of at least a portion of the formed layer of build material.
