PartSnap is now offering a new finish: metal plated 3D printed parts with a VeroWhitePlus core. The metal plating is available with matte and polished finishes and, in addition to its aesthetic value, it also provides structural enhancements to the parts. RePliForm has developed an excellent multi-layed metal-plating technology that they call RePliKote.

The metal coating also provides a great deal of creep resistance which is a common limitation of many additive prototype plastic parts. Take a look at the pictures and and contact PartSnap if you have any questions. If you don’t need any special finishing options, use the 3D Printing Instant Quote system for fastest service.
