Photo-Realistic Results – Production Ready

Just the Right Touch to Complete Your Parts


Finishing Process

Selecting the right finishing process can make all the difference in the success of your prototype parts, model, or production parts. The GoProto staff has years of expertise to help guide you to the right finishing process. We have a variety of finishing levels for all processes to produce targets ranging from unfinished to photo-realistic results. Techniques include bead-blasting, polishing, dyeing, chemical/vapor/mechanical smoothing, wet paint, Cerakote, hydrographics, metalization, texturing and hardware installation. GoProto will have your parts looking how they should.

Color matching can be achieved by providing a physical sample or a Pantone color designation. Text and graphics can be applied to models with rub-ons, silkscreening, or pad printing. Metal parts can be enhanced with finishing with bead blasting, plating, anodizing, powder coating or chroming.

Please let us know what effect you are trying to achieve and we will make it happen.
