3D printing is combined with simple post-treatments to produce prototypes equalling those obtained by injection moulding, to refine advanced tooling systems and to manufacture durable and aesthetically-pleasing customised parts. Sealing, polishing and painting infinitely extends the possibilities developed by 3D printing.
Models printed in 3D using PolyJet technology (resin-based) offer a smooth surface and accurate details as soon as they leave the printer. From then on, it is possible to apply acrylic paints or lacquers and chromium plating.
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology prints models with production thermoplastics that can be rubbed down, drilled, glued and painted like any plastic part. Smoothing is effortless.
As for manufacturing, finishing treatments for 3D printing save time and increase the realism of parts:
