Benefits of finishes

MakerVerse offers a variety of finishes to further enhance your additive manufacturing parts for your specific use case. Depending on the post-processing method you choose, you'll be able to: 

Increase dimensional accuracy

Improve surface

Enhance design of part

Improve mechanical properties

Our finishes

Standard finish

For all LPBF, SLS, and MJF parts ordered at MakerVerse, we provide a media blasting as part of our standard finish. For LPBF and FDM parts, we additionally include the removal of all support structure materials within our standard finish. For certain metals in LPBF, standard finish also includes annealing. For more details, please check out our material data sheets.

Media Blasting_Post Processing_3D Printing

Blasted (included in MV Standard)

An abrasive medium is applied to the component under high pressure. By using different media (e.g. corundum, sand or glass beads), both functional (achieving a certain surface roughness) and optical (polishing the surface) finishing can be performed.

Sanded_Post Processing_3D Printing

Sanding is performed for smoothing the part and removing any obvious blemishes, such as support marks or blobs using sandpaper. The chosen sandpaper depends on the layer height and print quality desired.


Tumbling_Post Processing_3D Printing

In tumbling, the metal or plastic part is reworked by grinding media in a container. The parts are deburred, finely ground and polished by vibration or rotation of the container.​


Dyeing_Post Processing_3D Printing

In the dyeing process, the plastic component is immersed in a water bath. The resulting chemical reaction causes the dye to penetrate the component. Characteristics of this are, on the one hand, a homogeneous color gradient and, on the other hand, an unchanging but more scratch-resistant surface.

Sealed_Post Processing_3D Printing

The sealing process is performed with an aqueous solution to close the outer surface or skin of the part and fill in small pores that could be in the part’s surface. The sealing solution is manually applied or through dipping depending on the part’s geometry.


Polished_Post Processing_3D Printing

Polishing is a finishing process for smoothing a workpiece's surface by using an abrasive. By repeating this process throughout different stages with reduced roughness of the abrasive, you create a smooth and polished surface.


Painting_Post Processing_3D Printing

During painting additional color is applied to the printed part. This can be done by using a professional spray painting system. To get the desired output the part is properly prepared through accurate cleaning and by applying a clearcoat. Painting can be particularly useful to enhance the design of your printed part or to facilitate the evaluation of a printed prototype.


Smoothing_Post Processing_3D Printing

In the smoothing process, the plastic component is reworked by a chemical reaction. The top layer of the component is dissolved by a medium in a solution bath and the result is a very smooth surface.


Heat Treatment_Post Processing_3D Printing

During heat treatment, the material is heated to a desired temperature. After reaching and remaining at this temperature, the material is cooled back down. As a result, the material properties can be specifically adapted to individual use cases. For specifications of the heat treatment procedures carried out for each material, visit the corresponding data sheets.

CNC_Machining_Post Processing_3D Printing

We offer CNC machining for post-processing which includes turning, milling and drilling among other possibilities. Advantages of CNC machining are its dimensional stability, low surface roughness and its flexibility for customer-specific requirements. CNC machining requires a drawing for our engineers to assess the work required. Tolerances available upon request.
