In this introductory course, you'll be shown the tips and tricks of using an acetone vapour solution to smooth your 3D Prints. This technique can drastically reduce the finishing time of a 3D print, as it can bypass hours of filling and sanding. You'll learn about the preparation of prints, certain print settings that benefit the process and also the limitations of the process.
