Making your PLA prints FLEXIBLE V2 (and ABS smoothing!)
by nickdisney, published
Okay, so yesterday I uploaded a video of a few parts I have managed to make into flexible pieces. Today I am giving you the how to. (I waited to make sure the parts remained flexible and to see if I could come up with a suitable way to restore the color to some of the treated parts.)
Just as an update, I found some ABS parts in my scraps that came with my printer, and after about two seconds immersed in this liquid, the surface became gummy and smooth, and then hardened after about fifteen minutes. so for those of you with heated beds printing with ABS, this is definitely something to experiment with.
