3D Printed Metal Part Post Machining

3D metal printing or Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) provides the ability to design parts that can free the designer to explore and create geometries beyond the limits of any other production process.  To supplement this process, Protolabs offers a special post-processing of DMLS components to create superior surface finishes and features.


  • Production of complex geometries within a short time frame
  • Precise finishing of the surfaces (e.g. lustre turning)
  • Compliance with exact tolerances
  • Extensive selection of threads
  • Building of sub-assemblies
