Surface treatment of Ninjaflex

Recommended Posts

I'm also curious about this. Would be lovely to be able to smooth out the surface of a ninjaprint. Anyone tried anything? Sanding? Acetone ect?

By accident I found out that hot air (I use a blower with temp setting at 300℃) does create a similar effect as acetone. The same seem to be the case with ngen flex.

Of course the effect of the the light blow and gravity must be taken into account. But it is not too difficult and compared to acetone is almost instant.

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
