Injection Molding

Discussing what we do with our prints after we make them (clean up, integration, etc)

Injection Molding

Not sure this is technically post processing, but there is a guy on Thingiverse and Instructables talking about making ABS molds and then using the printer to inject PLA into it (at low pressure, of course). Might be of interest.

It really depends on your project. What are you trying to do?

If you don't want to reply and just dig in, I'd check a site like smooth-on for resin.
