ABS//PLA 3D Print Smoothing?

lets look at some options

Hot Vapor Smoothing using Acetone - this is said to be quite dangerous. I would imagine it's because you are creating a cloud of acetone vapor. O_o One thing to note is that Acetone does not work well with PLA. However Ethyl Acetate is said to produce a similar smoothing effect.

Other options would be spraying the acetone using a spray bottle. This way is not going to give as a consistent a surface finish. but its a lot easier of a set up.

An alternative to acetone might be using epoxy
