Color contrast

Recommended Posts

Posted · Color contrast

It appears to my eyes that different colors provide different levels of contrast when you observe a 3D printed object. If this is true, the question is, which colors are the best?

This is not about observing the artifacts. By contrary, this assumes you obtained a nice smooth surface, perhaps as mate as possible, and you want to analyse details of the object.

I tried to search, but cannot find relevant keywords to avoid bulk results about contrast between colors, so I said to myself that someone may know.

Obviously is a matter of perception, it is subjective, and may vary between observers, but could be that statistically some colors perform better.

To me, for instance, mid-tone colors provide better contrast than lighter (e.g. white, yellow) or darker (e.g. black).
