Post processing & finishing

The finishing touches can make all the difference when it comes to manufacturing. In 3D printing, processes such as cleaning, curing, polishing and coloring will all determine the final look and physical qualities of the part. In CNC machining, adding surface finishes such as anodizing, powder coating and electroless nickel plating will impact everything from the a product’s appearance to its strength and electrical conductivity. Explore the various options and outcomes for post processing.
