    Thanks Mindless. I didn’t know that but I will keep in mind. I don’t keep it under pressure when I smooth ABS in the vapor. I also make my own rocket fuel using confectioners sugar and potassium nitrate. Guess who is going to put a little acetone in with the mix……. (This GUY). If I blow my hand off I’ll let you know!

    Hell juerg,

    I use 3D Solutech ABS filament and it doesn’t smell any different than the PLA.
    You might want to give it a try. I have used over 30 spools of this brand with 2 bad spools which the company replaced.

    Thank you for your c…[Read more]

    So the first step has been taken! I am currently upgrading my printer so it can print ABS.

    I am experimenting with how acetone vapor smooths the surface of ABS filament. This boat benchy was place in a vapor bath for 30 minutes. I plan on doing this with my Inmoov.

    • I know, done it myself but given up because:
      – acetone is bad for your health
      – try using pla instead of abs, much easier and less stinky!

      • Awesome Finish,,, My Only warning is that Pressurized Vapor is actually about 1/8 to a 1/2 stick of TNT,,,, 2Tbps of Petrol Pressurized and Vapor is about 1/2 a stick,,, Acetone Can be just as dangerous So be Careful Dude,,,, they don’t normal tell you that in the Instruction Book,,,,,,, once again Awesome finish

    Hello,

    I am going to start using my 3D printer to build an InMoov. I usually use it for prototyping different projects. My main goal is to make Halloween props for the house! We will see where this goes.

    P.S. I am going to use flesh tone ABS. I have only used PLA in the past but I want to be able to “melt” the layer lines.…[Read more]
