Color gamut modeling of ink jet systems has proved itself to be an invaluable research tool over the past three decades. It has allowed for the quantitative comparison of the effects of colorants, media, dithering patterns, and many other variables that affect the printers color output. Often the color gamut is displayed as a 2-dimensional projection of the full 3-dimensional volume. It will be shown that critical data is lost in the 2D displays which may lead to incorrect conclusions during ink set comparisons.
