Electroplating 3D Printed Plastic Parts| 7 August, 2019
I have been approached about researching the potential for electroplating 3D printed plastic parts. Electroplating plastic has been around for a while, but with the rise of 3D printing, this option is becoming something worth investigating.
Does anyone know much about this process, i.e., quality of conductivity of parts after plating, durability, etc.?
Does the finish of these parts resemble the 3D print, insomuch as the rough appearance? Or does this go away after plating?
