Anodizing is a method for changing the surface chemistry of metals and other substrates. It protects against corrosion, enhances aesthetic qualities, resists scratching and is one of the most durable surface finishes available. Let’s take aluminum as an example to see how this process cleverly exploits oxidation for a result that’s both decorative and functional.
What does it take to make the most of 3D metal printing? In a recent article for New Design magazine, Gordon Styles explains that it’s a true industrial process requiring skilled technicians with advanced manufacturing knowledge.
Last week our founder and president Gordon Styles was a guest on Leslie Langnau’s MakePartsFast podcast. In the interview he discussed designing for plastic injection molding as well as 3D printed conformal cooling cores.
