Paint: Blurring the Lines Between Prototype and production Parts


Whether parts will be used as marketing samples, demonstration models or final production parts, it is necessary to create parts that look, feel and match expectations for what the production parts will look and feel like. 3D printed parts need to fit into a lineup with molded components with the ultimate goal being that no one can tell the difference. Paint plays a critical element in this equation as it can be used to match almost any finish out there. Painting parts is the perfect way to blur the lines between prototype and production. In this presentation, we will share different paint finishes that can be achieved with colors and textures.
