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

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