Are you referring to a specific process here? I know of processes that
can produce colored parts and processes that can produce translucent (or
"transparent", for varying definitions of transparency) parts, but not a
process that can do both. Is your geometry such that you can build the
parts separately and assemble them later? Being unaware of a specific
technology that meets your needs, that is the route I would investigate.
