Facilitating post-processing of printed metal parts using multi-material printing

To many, 3D-printing is still an almost magical technology that can create objects seemingly out of thin air, much like the replicators in Star Trek. And indeed, with proper design, almost ready-to-use parts can be pulled directly from a hobbyist fused deposition modeling (FDM) printer after the print run is finished. Though more often a significant amount of manual effort is needed to make the part usable, and a lot of this is support removal.

It is surprising how much of this also applies to industrial metal printing using laser powder…
