Direct application of acetone on ABS...

Postby DonaldJ » 2014-Nov-Thu-20-Nov

This is a promising initial attempt using a cotton swab to apply acetone on the part.

Pro: -Uses very little acetone, no extra equipment or apparatus required, allows selective smoothing in areas that require more/less

Con: -Not good for large flat or uniform areas, requires a bit of experimentation

This model was printed with a .4mm nozzle, .2mm layer height.
