System-related post-processing

Post-Process Module

C1.E

Pre-Process

Participants will be able to remove excess material from the equipment at the end of the printing process and, if necessary, send it for reprocessing. They will be able to remove the components or the entire build platform for further processing and clean the equipment, as well as the peripherals, and prepare them for the next print.

Prior knowledge

Required: Basic knowledge of AM technologies
