How to improve Aesthetic and Mechanical Properties of FDM 3D Printed Parts

Vapour smoothing FDM 3D printed parts

Finishing adds Value to your FDM 3D printed parts 3D printing technology breaks the rules of conventional manufacturing. It allows engineers to build complex geometries, create massive parts, consolidate multiple part components and design solely for form, fit and function rather than for the manufacturing process. Finishing/Post-processing enhances what a 3D printer can do, improving…
