Acetone vaporizing is one of the post-processing methods used for smoothing down the surface of a print and giving it a more attractive look. This method works only with prints made with Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT and Z-ASA Pro.

The acetone vaporizing using a glass container should be a temporary solution. To retain your model’s high quality, it is recommended to use Zortrax Apoller to automate the smoothing process. More details are available at: Zortrax Apoller.

Acetone is a highly hazardous substance. Wear safety gloves while using acetone. Avoid inhaling acetone haze as it may irritate your respiratory system.
