Event description

Description

Participants will bring home two animal figures printed in Polysmooth material polished by Isopropyl Alcohol using the Polysher nebuliser device.

Participants are to first practice alcohol-welding and to learn to use the Polysher with pre-printed parts; first working on a simple Red-White-Blue Pig (remixed from and Sleeping Pig by MustangDave) and then the popular Polysmoooooth Cow (Polymaker remix of a Yahoo!Japan design).

Finally, participants will be shown popular web repositories for 3D printable models and taught how to use the software BlockSCAD or 3D builder to separate a model in several parts; while waiting for their figures to be polished.

Main Takeaways:

● How to use alcohol to “weld” parts printed in Polysmooth materials (PVB)

● How to operate the Polysher device to post process 3D printed parts for a smooth surface finish

● How to use BlockSCAD or 3D Builder to split a model into sub parts
