    Default Wire EDM of Metal printed parts from base plate

    Can someone advise on the standard procedure for Metal Sintered support structure removal from the base plate with Wire EDM...
    Is the interface between the bottom of the support structures and the build plate processed, or is the whole surface area of the build plate processed?

    I usually cut the parts off about .010"-.015" off the plate then we put the plate in a Haas mill and hit it with a fairly large diameter fly cutter. It def chews up some inserts but it's the best solution we've found so far. Not exactly sure what kind of parts you're building and what the plate looks like but that's how we do it. We're using 10x10 build plates....fairly cheap ones as well.
