Anyone using one of these?

I bought one, but until now the results are not what i expected.

Printing with the polysmooth is easy, but once polyshed, the results are not so good.

My parts are either not polyshed enough, or stay tacky even after several days. bottom of the polished part are also to "wet"

I tried several settings, but until now nothing satisfying.

My isopropanol is 99%

Any tips?

    I have been playing with one too, what kind of settings are you applying?

     

    I found that polishing for 30 35 minutes gave good results, im printing with .15 layers and it needs at least two walls and infill not to deform 

     

    I tried a spiralize print but after polyshing it got very soft

    Hi Rudy, I managed to borrow a Polysher from 3DFilaPrint to do some more realistic models from the one that were used in the advitising to do a field test report on, I have attached the link to the file on their web site

    For the Braq dragons we printed we found that they had to be left for a week to air dry and harden before being assembled otherwise they would stick together. Fine detail would be lost during the treatment and depending on the surface finish etc we could be using a 50 minute cycle time for some parts. Thin wall parts including the vase could collapse and if a filagree type print was too fine it would basically desolve away.

    Hey,

    For printing i use .15mm, 3 shells, 225 degrees. Prints superb.

    For Polyshing, i used several timings, between 10 minutes and 30 minutes. Tried to polish in 1 or 2 passes, in several positions.

    What kind of isopropanol do you use?
