    post processing of 3d printed part

    FDM is best suited for cost effective prototypes produced with short lead time. Layer lines are generally present on FDM prints making post processing an important step if a smooth surface is required. Some post processing methods can also add strength to prints helping to mitigate the anisotropic behavior of FDM parts.

    This blog will discuss the most common FDM post processing methods.

        The given description is very useful and it really helped me a lot. The details have to be followed by the users and the main thing is that if the user does not know the process then it will be difficult to post the 3d printed part.
