With respect to this question, How can you both reliably print and remove your item without breaking it when detatching it?, the OP rightly states the following:

ps. I didn't find (and I can't make one), for what I think would be, the correct tag(s) for this post. Please forgive me.

Does anyone have a good suggestion regarding this? Should the question be re-tagged? Is a new tag even required?

The question is currently tagged under and . Are these sufficient? They don't really seem appropriate. Is there an already existing tag that would fit?

I thought of tag:object removal, tag:print removal or bed scrapping, but they all sound a bit off (except, maybe, for print-removal). What is the technical term (if there is one), for those in the know, for this activity?

imho that could be a post-processing category/tag.

    $\begingroup$ Nice one, thanks. There is also a postproduction tag, without a description. After a quick_ glance at the questions tagged postproduction, I can't see what the difference is. Maybe they should be merged? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Greenonline In relation to my post in your Meta question, this would be a great example of Post-Processing since you're altering the physical dimensions of the material. It's similar to removing clamping stock when machining a part out of a mill or lathe. $\endgroup$
