Affordable 3D smoothing technology

    3D printing technology is becoming more accessible every year. Nevertheless, all modern household printers still have one significant drawback - low resolution and, as a result, “ripples” on the surface of printed objects. Existing methods for its elimination are either very laborious or fraught with loss of detail.
    Enthusiasts Austin Wilson and Neil Underwood have found a simple and effective way to solve this problem. All he needs is an electric stove, a jar and acetone. The object is placed in a jar filled with acetone, which heats up to 90 degrees. Under the influence of the formed vapors, the surface gradually levels out and after 5-10 minutes it becomes absolutely smooth.
    In the presented illustration, you can see a printed figure of a squirrel before and after the process. Agree, a good result?
