Tru-Design and Composites One have signed a distribution agreement for Tru-Design’s material coatings and finishes for 3D printed components.

Tru-Design’s coating materials provide smoother surfaces and vacuum integrity for large scale 3D printed tools and cosmetic parts, the company says.

‘Tru-Design’s advanced material coatings and finishes will allow our customers to take advantage of 3D printed tooling that offers comparable cosmetics to traditional tooling options,’ said Dave Smith, VP at Composites One.
