I've got to coat my SLA parts and I'd like them to be metallized. Does
anyone know of a vendor who metallizes or "plates" SLA-built parts
(preferrably in the Detroit area)?

Also for you SLA-Mold makers: Does anyone have a nice coating to apply to
SLA parts which gives a nice surface which would be chemically resistant
(i.e. solvents) and has good release properties?

Thanks in advance,
