What are Your Options for Improved Surface Finishes After 3D Printing?

Posted by 3DEO on Jan 8, 2020 9:38:16 AM

As you may or may not know, the Intelligent Layering, a proprietary technology developed by 3DEO, provides the best as-printed surface finish in metal 3D printing. Customers have compared our surface finish to a "very nice cast finish" in that it's matte silver and silky smooth. While it's good enough in the as-printed state for many applications, there are also a number of options to improve or change the surface post print.

This is the REAL Obstacle for Production Metal 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on Dec 4, 2019 7:24:57 AM

You might not think that a 3D printer and a sculptor have anything in common, but you’d be wrong. While 3D printing companies usually focus on the automated parts of their process, there can be a tremendous amount of labor and post-processing required to finish a part. This depends on the metal 3D printing process, of course, but the idea is generally the same--parts require a lot of finishing work after the print. While such things are usually straight-forward, the flexibility of AM and importance of post-processing adds another layer of complexity to the process.

50% of Survey Respondents Report "Significant Competitive Advantage" from 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on Nov 1, 2019 10:18:03 AM

More and more companies are turning to 3D printing to give their businesses a "significant" competitive advantage. According to a survey published in the 2019 edition of "The State of 3D Printing," additive manufacturing has taken on a bigger role in their business strategies, and nearly half of those polled say it has given them a distinct competitive advantage. Another 55% indicate that 3D printing is one of their strengths, and because they have adopted the technology, they are staying ahead of the competition.
