Metal 3D printing or machining metal parts can be a costly process. Hybrid techniques, like using electroplating with an affordable in-house SLA 3D printer, can help achieve high-detail, metal-like parts at a low cost.

In this webinar, learn how electroplating expands the material palette of SLA 3D printing to achieve high-stiffness, wear resistant end- use parts. While SLA printing enables creation of complex custom parts, electroplating transforms SLA parts to obtain metal-like properties including high modulus, electrical conductivity, or aesthetic finishes.

What you'll learn:

  • The science behind the electroplating process and how it increases the stiffness of 3D printed parts.
  • How users are leveraging the technology for mechanical, electrical, and aesthetic applications.
  • Design and printing best practices to ensure success when working with an electroplating service.
