ASA Filament: Everything You Need to Know

There are different types of 3D printers. Resin 3D printer has some benefits over filament printer in that resin printer can print the smaller parts with much more detail. However, the downside is that the 3D printed parts are not as strong and durable as the filament 3D printed parts. Thus, electroplating is done by adding metal to increase the strength of these parts. The electroplating procedure improves the strength, durability, and appearance of the lightweight and intricate 3D-printed components. Metal 3D printing is also possible but is an expensive method. Hence electroplating is the best solution that helps to get the benefits of both metal material and 3D printing. Plastic 3D-printed parts can be coated with metal through the electroplating process as well. Read More
