3D printing is increasingly used for manufacturing final parts. The look and feel of final parts can be important, especially if they are intended for visible or wearable applications. We find that after parts are printed and cleaned, their aesthetic qualities can benefit from a
variety of finishing processes. In this paper, we describe our post-processing work, largely for parts printed using HP’s Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF), and with an emphasis on techniques that scale sufficiently to be useful in manufacturing workflows. We detail our efforts using vibratory
tumblers for smoothing, and coatings and dyes for visual appearance, as well as how we have used some of these techniques and methods for specific wearables.
