3D printed parts can also be painted. Lacquer helps the object to give the desired appearance and surface structure.
The component surface should be finished before painting. Grinding, fine grinding and fillers is essential. Filler comes from “fill up” and compensates for unevenness of the surface and ensures that the next layer of paint adheres optimally.
Advantages of paintwork:
- protective effect, e.g. UV protection
- optical effect, decoration
- special surface properties, e.g. changed electrical conductivity, surface protection for medical devices
