Smooth-On 3D Print Coating...anyone try this?

Recommended Posts

Randy in LA,

looking forward to your report, as well. Not only am I interested in the outcome, but your method for application, foam brush, bristle brush, applying while on a lathe or revolving display unit to help achieve uniformity, etc. I've even wondered about dipping finished prints, but don't want to experiment. :???:

It's good to hear +FB about the Smooth On product line. Do you like their mold release spray, too?

Just wondering, Didier Klein, here, 33 days later if you ever saw any feedback from your French Forum contact? Please advise. Thanks

Yes i have :) (not much but i have)

It's in french (obviously), if google translate isn't too bad you should manage to understand most of it.

Basically it gives a shiny look and makes the lines show less.

I had to go looking through my old supplies to find which mold release I used. I have a can of Mann's Ease Release 200 and Smooth-On's Universal Mold Release. I must have used the Smooth-On more because the can is absolutely empty! I use Oomoo 30 for molds and various plastics; Smooth-Cast 300, Smooth-Cast 305, Smooth-Cast 325, Smooth-Cast 385, Task-9 and a bunch of So-Strong color tints. I've never really been into modeling, but rather, used the products to reproduce lost or broken knobs/buttons from various recording studio gear.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
