Posted in June last year, the video at a lower place offers a easy way to get rid of any roughness which accompanies your 3D print.
The example here is a few residue left over of a printed assist structure. Whilst you may usually get rid of this with a solvent, a few elbow grease and sandpaper, the creator of the video has a advantageous way.

A bit like magic, is not it? The thermal transfer tool, a type of easy branding iron rapidly melts raised surfaces and leaves a clean finish. To stop the plastic burning a light dimmer switch was introduced to the tool’s circuit.

If you want to do this by yourself, you will require to track down one of the thermal transfer tools and modify it. On the other hand, picking up a bargain-priced soldering iron to experiment on may work well.
If any of our readers gives this a try, we’d love to see the results! Send it to us at makers.htxt, on Facebook or Twitter!
