Design Tips to Help You Get More Polish From 3D Printed Stainless Steel

Hey guys,

I hope you are enjoying the 3D printed Glazed Ceramics so far. Along with my goal to give Shapeways more smooth and shiny products, we’ve also been working with our 3D printed Stainless Steel production partners to come up with some tips on how to ensure your pieces gets a better polished feel.

See above for polished (left) and unpolished (right)

We scrounged together a few tips, as well as some numbers to keep in mind when you engrave or emboss details. Please visit the Stainless Steel Polishing Design Rules page for more information. As always, remember to check the Stainless Steel design rules before designing to raise the printability of your design.

Happy creating!
