Metal Surface Finishing

metal surface finishing

Most of our customers cannot define the specification for the type of surface finish that they require for their 3D printed metal part. They know what they want but do not have a specification for it. Using our process technology, we can define a repeatable manufacturing process to achieve the surface finish you desire for your metal parts.

Plastic Surface Finishing

3D plastic parts

A lot of our customers cannot describe the specification for the type of surface finish that they require for their 3D printed plastic part. They know what they want but do not have a specification for it.
