Dremel acessories for pos production

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dremel acessories for pos production

Hi guys!

Would like to know... What Dremel acessories (or other) are usefull for PLA pos production?

ABS is much easier to pos production using acetone, but I`m having troubles with PLA, mainly when I use support materials.

Thanks by the way! ;)

You need to be careful with a Dremel as heat builds up very quickly and will melt the plastic. Personally I do not use one because my wife is a jeweller and so I have access to high quality(expensive) files. If you go down that route, you do not use a sawing action with the file, i.e. back and forth. You position the file and push, position and push etc.

That`s true, need to take care.

I tryed to fix some stuffs using a rough sandpaper that cames with my Dremel kit but its not working well even when I use the lower speed.

Actually Dremel is being usefull with color fabb bronze fill, just need to find another aplication to work with it.

it would be cool find a smooth sanding acessory or another thing that works well without leave a scar on a PLA model

1500 wet and dry works very well on minor "raised" blemishes. I have been using it this week preparing some parts for spray painting

Have a look at this article. It gives great tips on finishing methods, friction welding and filling with a Dremel like tool.

After reading this I went out and got my Dremel. It works great. Particularly like the trick on using "rivet" fixings and hinges.
