Vapor Smoothing


Valid for: 

Desktop Series, Industrial Series

 

Question:
Do we have any information or recommendations about using vapor smoothing as a post-processing technique with Nylon?

Answer:
Nylon is very resistant to common solvents and the like, one of the reasons it is useful in a manufacturing environment. There is no widely accepted vapor process for smoothing nylon, and we recommend that our users do not experiment in this area. On the other hand, please check our blog and webinars, where we cover and will continue to cover various methods of post-processing Markforged parts.
