How to Create Textures on FDM 3D Printed Parts using SOLIDWORKS

When creating models for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing, layer lines can be present, especially when it’s a smooth surface. Adding textures to your FDM 3D Printed Parts can help mask these marks.

Plus, with the addition of these patterns to your 3D designs and prints, you are boosting the level of realism on your parts, taking them to the next level.

About this FDM 3D Printed Parts On-Demand Webinar

Watch our webinar as TriMech Application Engineer, Andrew Sink, demonstrates how to add textures to your SOLIDWORKS designs. He will teach you how to turn a 2D texture to 3D, walking you through the entire process, including printing the final part using a Stratasys FDM 3D printer.
