What is 3D printing and how does it work?

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D-printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

It starts with making a virtual design of the object that is to be created. This virtual design is made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file using a 3D-modeling program (for the creation of a totally new object) or with the use of a 3D scanner (to copy an existing object). A 3D scanner makes a 3D digital copy of an object.

Smooth-Solv ABS is a newly formulated product that smooths and polishes ABS 3D prints very controllable
Our ABS smoothing solvent Smooth-Solv ABS is flammable but much less so than acetone with a flash point well above 100F it is a much safer and more controllable than acetone smoothing.
The way it works is, a part can either be dipped into the Smooth-Solv ABS and left for a period of time (no longer than an hour) depending on the level of smoothness desired or sprayed in light applications every 10 mins. In either case if the desired level of smoothing has been reached the smoothing process can be instantly neutralized with a quench in 100% Isopropyl alc. or left to air dry, in which case the smoothing/polishing process would continue for a short time after removal from dip
The finish is glossy, much like an acetone but more evenly spread and a LOT SAFER
