Does the Polysher work with Acetone?
No. The Polysher is only uses alcohol or alcohol solutions (with concentrations of 70% or higher) as the polishing liquid. Do not use acetone with the Polysher, Polymaker do not recommend other liquids/solvents other than isopropanol or ethanol. This will damage the unit and void your warranty.
Can I smooth my PLA and ABS printed parts?
The Polysher is designed to only work with an Alcohol Soluble filament like PolySmooth PVB. PLA and ABS are not polishable with alcohol.
Is the Polysher a 3D Printer?
No, the Polysher is not a 3D printer, you will still need an FDM extrusion based machine to use this product.
What size parts can I smooth with the Polysher?
You can smooth parts up to a 150mm diameter x 180mm height cylinder.
Is the Polysher Safe?
The short answer is yes. Polymaker have taken many steps to ensure their technology is safe. No heating is involved. The nebulizer technology requires only a very small reservoir. It is a liquid-phase polishing rather than vapor-phase polishing process (the latter is more dangerous for a number of reasons)
Polymaker have also implemented a number of safety features into the machine: Multiple sensors to detect any sign of malfunction of the nebulizer (e.g. running dry) as well as a Chamber open/close sensor (the machine won’t start if the chamber is open, and will automatically terminate if the chamber is accidentally open during polishing.)
