It has apparently become clear to 3D printer manufacturers that the post-processing firms are big enough now to integrate their finishing technologies can be more directly integrated into their ecosystems. Coinciding with the 2021 AMUG Conference, Stratasys has teamed up with DyeMansion to create a bundle for its new SAF powder bed fusion technology. Meanwhile, PostProcess Technologies has announced the compatibility of one of its resin removal system with Carbon’s 3D printing process.
The PostProcess DEMI 910 now works with Carbon’s digital light synthesis 3D printers, cleaning a complete build from a larger-format Carbon L1 or two build platforms from the M2. The DEMI 910 combines software, hardware and chemistry to rinse 3D printed parts, in this case relying on Carbon-specific detergent.

Interestingly, Carbon already sells its Smart Part Washer, but perhaps, due to a greater level of experience and some of the intelligent software, the DEMI 910 offers greater automation and quality than Carbon’s own product? PostProcess’s AUTOMAT3D software is meant to actively apply the appropriate “agitation intensities, temperatures, process time and other process factors” for a given part,
