Choosing the right hybrid photosynthesis finishing level for your project.

Hybrid PhotoSynthesis printing produces parts that require post-processing to achieve the desired surface finish. The finishing level chosen depends on the part’s geometry, intended use, and aesthetics. Smooth surface finishes require higher finishing levels, while functional elements can have lower finishing levels. Considering budget and requirements when selecting a finishing level is essential since higher levels are more expensive.

Level Process
Natural
Support faces are sanded, and layer lines are visible.
Standard
Support faces are sanded, and the entire part is bead-blasted for a matte/opaque finish with some layer lines visible (black will appear grey).
Improved Exterior
Exterior (cosmetic) surfaces are sanded, and the entire part is bead-blasted for a smooth matte finish.
Improved All
All accessible surfaces are sanded, and the entire part is bead-blasted for a smooth matte finish.
Clear
Natural finish with clear coat. The layer lines are still visible.
Improved Clear
All accessible surfaces are sanded smooth with a clear coat for optimal clarity on transparent materials.
Primed Exterior
Exterior (cosmetic) surfaces are sanded, bead-blasted, and primed grey.
Primed All
All accessible surfaces are sanded, bead-blasted, and primed grey.
Painted
All accessible surfaces are sanded, bead-blasted, primed, and painted (provide a drawing with your paint specifications).
