‘Hawk Ridge Systems believes in providing turnkey 3D printers for our customers for use in rapid prototyping, tooling, and production manufacturing,’ said vice president of engineering at Hawk Ridge Systems, Cameron Carson. ‘Often overlooked, post-printing is a critical part of all 3D printing processes, including support removal and surface finish refinement.’

Hawk Ridge ( represents PostProcess’ seventh channel partner signed in North America in the last year. The company also opened its international headquarters office in Sophia-Antipolis, France, and established its European channel partner, Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH in late 2018.
