This can occur two separate ways: for the top and the sides of a print. Read More
 A few days ago, I read a post on the 3D Printing Facebook group from Steve McGarr where he shared a beautiful print of an Einstein bust that was baby butt smooth.  To my surprise, he said that it was simply acetone vapor polished Polymaker Polywood. Read More
There are two main opposing types of errors that can produce poor corners: ringing and corner swell. To achieve high-quality corners, certain parameters must be matched to the printer’s physical characteristics, and they must be balanced to avoid falling into either of these errors.

I had a great time attending Midwest Reprap Fest 2016.  It was a lot of fun to meet online friends in person and see the amazing work that reprappers are doing.
