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.

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

Necessary Items

  • A model printed with Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT, or Z-ASA Pro
  • Acetone
  • A piece of gauze
  • A glass container
  • Magnets
  • A mat made of a material that doesn’t react with acetone, e.g. glass
