Part Finishing

Secondary processes on post-cured parts can expand the part application capability. Some examples of these secondary processes are painting, plating, bead blasting, sand-blasting, or water honing.

  • Parts can be finished using standard SLA techniques, such as sanding and filing.

  • Water honing has shown to be a good finishing method to clean up parts and produces a matte finish
