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

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

    http://makezine.com/projects/make-34/skill-builder-finishing-and-post-processing-your-3d-printed-objects/

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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
