by • April 25, 2016 • No Comments

When you 3D print an item many individuals assume a thing created in a plastic material to be shiny and ideal like a thing you may pick up at a keep. The problem for many 3D printing equipment is which when they are finished printing an object, the object has a rocky surface with lines all over it of the layer printing system. The individuals behind the PolySmooth PVB filament say which the new filament to be utilized in the print system is the core of their innovation.

PolySmooth PVB brings balanced mechanical properties and polishabiltiy to printed objects. The material is able-bodied to be polished when exposed to common alcohols like isopropyl alcohol or ethanol. The polishing system exposes the 3D printed part to an aerosol of alcohol via a nebulizer which creates small droplets in the range of 10 microns or less. Those droplets absorb into the surface of the 3D printed part and can some day manufacture the surface smooth.
The entire polishing system is handled within the Polysher PC machine. The material is offered in 11 various colors for various requires. The Polysher is able-bodied to handle polishing of parts up to 15cm x 15cm x 18cm. The time requireed to polish an object is of 7 minutes. The filament does not require a heated bed and is suitable-bodied for investment casting and is suitable-bodied for a wide range of printing temperatures.
PolySmooth PVB and the Polysher machine are on Kickstarter seeking $100,000 and as of writing has raised over $189,000 with 29 days to go. A pledge of $249 or additional can get you a Polysher and a single spool with 750g of PolySmooth filament. Additional filament can sell for $35 per spool and shipping is estimated to take place in October 2016.
