Dyeing SLS 3D Printed Parts: Benefits and Workflow

Selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printed parts are increasingly relied upon in industries as diverse as aerospace and eyewear design for their superior mechanical properties and cost efficient production methods.

To further improve their aesthetic and mechanical properties, SLS 3D printing users often employ post-processing techniques like dyeing, coating, plating, or painting.
