This Specialty family provides unique filaments from Polymaker to unlock new 3D printing applications.
PolySmooth™ is a unique, easy-to-print filament designed for hands-free post processing. The surface can be smoothed with alcohol to achieve layer free models using the Polysher.
PolySmooth™ features Polymaker's Layer-Free™ technology:
Layer-Free™ technology involves exposing a 3D printed part to an aerosol of micro-sized alcohol droplets, generated by a rapidly vibrating, perforated membrane called the nebulizer. The aerosol will then be adsorbed by the surface of the 3D printed part and render it smooth and layer-free.
How to smooth PolySmooth
PolySmooth™ can be smoothed with IPA using 2 methods:
1) Using the Polysher (less labor intensive, safer, more consistent and reliable results)
2) Spraying IPA with a spray bottle
For 2) we recommend spraying a thin coat of IPA on the surface of your PolySmooth™ model and let it dry for 15-20min and cycle these 2 steps until the desired smoothness.
CAUTION: Proceed in a well ventilated area to avoid inhaling IPA vapors.
