Before and After Polishing
What’s in the box – Polysher™
- Can I smooth PLA or ABS parts in the Polysher?
The Polysher is designed to only work with PolySmooth™ and alcohol; PLA and ABS are not polishable with alcohol.
- Can I use acetone to polish ABS in the Polysher?
The Polysher™ is designed to only use alcohol or alcohol solutions (with concentrations of 70% or higher) as the polishing liquid. We do not recommend other liquids/solvents other than isopropanol or ethanol. Polymaker have written an extensive article to compare their solution with PolySmooth™/Polysher™, and the acetone-polishing of ABS. You can read the article here: http://www.polymaker.com/alcohol-vs-acetone-polysmooth-vs-abs/
- Is the Polysher safe to operate?
In short, yes! Safety has always been one of the key considerations in designing the Polysher™. Polymaker's technology is intrinsically safer – No heating is involved – The nebulizer technology requires only a very small reservoir – It is a liquid-phase polishing rather than vapor-phase polishing process (the latter is more dangerous for a number of reasons) Polymaker have also implemented a number of safety features into the machine: – Multiple sensors to detect any sign of malfunction of the nebulizer (e.g. running dry) – Chamber open/close sensor (the machine won’t start if the chamber is open, and will automatically terminate if the chamber is accidentally open during polishing) – All electronic components (running at very low voltages) are properly sealed, and no spark can be generated inside the chamber.
- Is the Polysher a new 3D printer
No – the Polysher™ is NOT a 3D printer. You still need a extrusion-based, FDM/FFF printer in order to use the Polysher. Specifically, PolySmooth™ is a new filament that you can print with your 3D printer, which prints similar to PLA. Once the printing is done, you can post-process your printed objects in the Polysher™ to obtain the amazing surface finish.
