Polysher is a post-processing machine designed for polishing the extrusion based FDM/FFF 3D printed parts, to achieve a shining and layer-free surface finish. It works with PolySmooth 3D Printer Filament to Create the Layer-Free Print Surface.
PolySmooth material gives excellent printing characteristics, balanced mechanical properties and “polyshability” when exposed to common alcohols such as isopropyl alcohol or ethanol. . The polisher works by simply spraying the piece with an alcohol aerosol solution.
The aerosol is generated by a unit called nebulizer, which consists of a thin membrane with hundreds of tiny (< 10 microns) holes, attached to a piezoelectric actuator. When actuated, the nebulizer will generate a fine aerosol of micro-sized alcohol droplets, which will then adsorb onto the surface of the 3D printed part and eventually make it smooth.
How to use Polysher:
- 3D print your part with PolySmooth, just like what you normally do with PLA
- Place the printed part in the Polysher
- Set the polishing time by turning the knob, a typical part takes 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and environmental temperature
- Once polishing is finished, the stage will automatically lift up to easily get the part.
Isopropanol or ethanol
20-40 min typical [varies based on part size, alcohol concentration and ambient temp]
