3D Printing: Adding Function with Electroplating
March 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
Using electroplating with an in-house SLA 3D printer can achieve high-detail, metal-like parts at a low cost. While 3D printing enables creation of complex custom parts, a thin metal coating transforms plastic parts to obtain metal-like properties including high modulus, electrical conductivity, or aesthetic finishes. You can use this integrated workflow to broaden the spectrum of what’s possible for your 3D printing applications. Additive manufacturing experts will share an end-to-end workflow from design best practices, to 3D printing, to post processing and plating. Discussion will include:
- How stereolithography material properties transform with electroplating
- Best practices to prepare for electroplating, including material selection
- Example applications, featuring structural and electrically conductive parts
