This will work for ABS, for PLA you’ll have to sand. (must admit sanding is boring)

@iLouis, Great info, thx :smile:

I print a lot of SBS plastic for it suitable solvents such as Dichloromethane and D-limonene, the treatment can be done by immersion for 1-5 seconds after which you need to let it dry out much faster than treating ABS with acetone vapor. I did not use PLA plastic, but I heard that Dichloromethane is suitable for it, can be treated with a brush or placed in a container with dichloromethane vapor as in video.
