Post-processing of 3D models is an effective way to eliminate defects that may occur when printing a product. Attachment points, roughness, unevenness, layering-getting rid of all the shortcomings will allow you to get a smooth and neat object ready for use.

Basic post-processing methods

To date, there are several post-processing methods that are selected by specialists depending on the type of product:

• Manual.
• Chemical.
• Use of specialized equipment.
• Coating application.

Gluing and assembling


Gluing parts is a common task when creating complex, large-scale objects, the printing of which is difficult or impossible due to its dimensions.

Gluing and assembling 100rub per joint

Mechanical smoothing


The mechanical processing of printed products is carried out in various ways, starting from an ordinary skin and ending with a grinding machine. As a rule, it is used for complex products where high accuracy is required. During manual processing, specialists use special tools that can eliminate external defects of the finished product.

Chemical smoothing


Chemical processing is the process of processing a printed part with an appropriate chemical (acetone for ABS plastic, methylene chloride for PLA plastic). This process is more suitable for giving the model a gloss and eliminating minor flaws. The main essence of chemical processing is the use of reagents or solvents. A very important nuance that affects the efficiency of the processing process is the selection of a particular material. Depending on the type of plastic and the general characteristics of the product, it is necessary to use a certain type of reagent.

Priming - finishing preparation of surfaces before painting. A filling primer is applied to hide all micro-pores and irregularities.

Putty is the process of leveling a part, filling seams, depressions and surface roughness. As a rule, it allows you to hide the layering of the surface after printing, unlike drilling.

Painting - applying layers of acrylic paint, it is allowed to use up to 3 colors for one part.

The varnish is used to protect the painted part from external influences, the varnish can be glossy or matte.

The use of specialized equipment - to achieve the maximum processing effect, special installations can be used. Processing 3D models after printing using such equipment allows you to get rid of all kinds of defects.

Coating - an effective method is the application of coatings (for example, metallization or epoxy coating). Such processing after.
