You can create a variety of custom parts with Xometry’s manufacturing capabilities including clear, translucent (or near transparent) parts. Clear parts are highly valuable in nearly every industry as display models, light pipes, component housing, and anything an engineer or designer needs to be clear.
To create clear parts, parts must undergo finishing as a secondary manufacturing operation known as post-processing. Of the various ways you can create clear parts, one way is to 3D print your parts using Stereolithography (SLA) in clear resin and then add a custom clear quote finish called Quick Clear. The clear coat evens out the surface of the part, which allows light to pass through with little distortion.
Xometry has recently added Stereolithography (SLA) Quick Clear to our suite of instantly quotable finishes.
You can choose SLA Quick Clear as a finish for ClearVue and see how this specification factors into your quote price, instantly.
In the past, customers could order clear parts by adding a “Custom” finish option and specifying Quick Clear as the finish in the notes section. Now, to get a quote on clear (translucent) parts within seconds, simply choose the following:
