Title
Description
Applicable to
Tolerances
Anodizing Type 1 Glossy
Ideal for increasing the corrosion resistance of the part. Typically results in a glossy color.
Anodizing Type 1 Matte
Ideal for increasing the corrosion resistance of the part. Results in naturally matte colours.
HydroDipping
Hydro dipping is a way to transfer graphics to objects without expensive printing equipment or paint. The process works by placing a special film on the surface of the water. A chemical solution is sprayed onto the film, which causes the film to dissolve into the water.
CNC Percision
CNC machining operation can be applied to the part to reduce its surface roughness and increase the dimensional precision and accuracy.
Painting
Color printed part according to your desired outcome by selecting from Pantone colour chart.
Sanding
Sanding is a process to smooth the printed part, remove blemishes and left over support marks.
Tapping
Tapping is a machining process of cutting a thread inside a hole to produce internal threads.
Threading
Insert A thread insert is a metal faster element that is inserted into an into an object to provide a threaded hole for a fastener such as a screw or bolt.
Painting
After smoothing the part with sanding and polishing, parts can be painted with automotive-grade paint. Provide a pantone color with your quote request. We also offer soft-touch painting.
Plating
Electroless nickel plating can be used to achieve parts that are similar to cast aluminum or magnesium.
Dyeing
Dyeing is another method for adding color to 3D prints. This is faster option with a limited color selection, so is a more cost-effective choice than painting.
Decaling
Decaling can be used to add a logo or other graphics to boost cosmetics or function.
Polishing
We can polish parts to a mirror-like finish. If this is a requirement, we ask that you provide either a drawing or image that indicates your finish expectations.
Heat Treatment
Harden and strengthen metal 3D prints with multiple heat treatment options: NADCAP heat treatment, hot isostatic pressing (HIP), solution annealing, and aging.
Machining
Machine metal 3D prints to achieve exceptional surface finish quality or meet tight tolerances.
Clear Coat
Clear cosmetic finish that can be applied to ABS-Like Translucent/Clear (WaterShed XC 11122) and PC-Like Translucent/Clear (Accura 60) materials.
