Post-processing is more than just the final finishing of a part. It needs to be integrated into the design phase of a project. In this episode, we dive into post-processing and finishing systems. It's a step that can add incredible value to your 3D printed product if done correctly. Many companies consider post-processing to be an afterthought, or they ignore it until it's too late and it is a big mistake because post-processing is such a vital part of any successful additive manufacturing initiative.

CEO and Co-founder of DyeMansion, Felix Ewald and host Fabian Alefeld discuss why post-processing is a big value driver for 3D printed products, the dreaded triangle of complexity, the post-processing options you should consider on your additive manufacturing journey, and how to develop application-specific post-processing workflows to exactly match the requirements in different industries and applications.
