Dremel acessories for pos production

Recommended Posts

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.


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

    • 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.
