Functional 3D Printed Part Cleaning, Smoothing & Surface Finishing

Finishing parts

Get a Professional Finish

Make your prototypes functional and look realistic with professional finishes from expert model makers.

TriMech offers a wide variety of 3D Printing Post-Processing Services to meet even the most demanding applications. Allowing you to reduce your 3D printing cycle time and obtain the most realistic prototype for fit, form and function testing, sales, and marketing.

Finishing & Post-Processing Capabilities

Part Cleaning & Support Material Removal

Are you spending too much time and effort on the support material removal stage of your 3D printing process?

Our Post Processing Part Cleaning Service will reduce your cycle time for removing support material and eliminate your manual post-printing ‘bottleneck’.

Part Smoothing & Texturing

Do you require a smooth surface finish for your 3D printed part? Does your part need to be made watertight? Or a specific type of texture required?

Our surface finishing service will ensure that you obtain the desired Roughness Average (Ra) and type of finish, while keeping the fine-feature detail of your 3D printed part intact.

Design optimization

Is your 3D printed part going to be used for sales and marketing? Does your prototype need to look realistic?

Our presentation finishing service can apply a variety of different surface finishes to your 3D printed part to make it look sales ready, including sealing, tempering, sanding, polishing, painting and electroplating.

Laser Cutting, Engraving and Marking

Take your printed parts to the next level with serialization and custom marking, or create custom gaskets and accessories for 3D printed assemblies.

Our Laser is optimized to work with the engineering thermoplastics we print, and common sheet materials up to 30 x Laser engraving[/caption]60cm. Providing services for research and development, engineering, sales, marketing, part serialization and facilities management.

Improving your 3D Printed Part Surface Finish

We can reduce the labor involved in obtaining the level of smoothness required from your 3D printed part and speed up your 3D printing process.

It is virtually impossible to achieve uniformity on every part with manual finishing. Our automated surface finishing service ensures that every part is identical, every time — to your specification with the precise Ra required.

We can also provide solvent smoothing to Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) parts to make them mold ready.

Solvent smoothing utilizes a chemical agent to smooth a part’s surface eliminating layer lines while preserving feature detail and part accuracy. Ideal for mold applications such as injection molding, silicone molding, sand casting, investment casting, and thermoforming.

Making prototypes look real

In the world of sales and marketing delivering presentations with a physical model will allow your potential customers to easily understand what you are selling and how it will be used.

Our 3D printing finishing service allows you to expand on what your 3D printed part can do by sealing, polishing and painting your models.

Complex material finishes and textures can also be applied with digital materials by the 3D Printer. Parts can also be assembled using traditional methods including glue bonding and hardware connections.

    Engraving and Marking

    TriMech can take your 3D printed or machined parts to the next level with serialization and custom marking. Or manufacture custom parts from your 2D designs from a variety of materials.

    TriMech provides laser processing services for research and development, engineering, sales, marketing, part serialization and facilities management.

    Mark/Print Anything

    Virtually any 2D design and file type can be printed from your design software. Including Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® Photoshop®, AutoCAD®, SOLIDWORKS®, DraftSight® and many others. Additionally, .DXF and .PDF file formats can be imported into the Universal Control Panel (UPC).

    Fast Processing Time

    We can cut, engrave and mark in one step. Additionally, we can engrave or mark a high-resolution image onto your material. Because our laser systems can perform many different types of operations in a single step we can process your part faster than other service providers.

    Process just about any material

    An endless number of materials are compatible with our laser system, including plastics, metals, silicone rubbers, fabrics, composites, laminating adhesives and other advanced materials to name a few.
