someone thought a rock polisher would work nicely for this, takes a while, but sounds much safer than thf
 
All the best

Subject: [hackspacebristol] 3D printing: PLA smoothing
 


Someone was asking me today at the BV Studios open day (well done everyone, by the way, everyone said we were the most fun room!) about smoothing/sanding PLA parts. I think it was a lady that does casting in G12, who was interested in lost PLA casting. I happened to find this this evening: http://www.protoparadigm.com/blog/2013/06/vapor-smoothing-and-polishing-pla-with-tetrahydrofuran-thf/

I used some of the old PLA (blue, green, black, transparent red, transparent green) printing lots of small Minecraft creeper keyrings. I gave most of them away, but there are a few left on top of the printer PC, if anyone wants to pick one up.

Ian
