Abstract3D printing technologies have gotten an attention as a viable option for future manufacturing. Among them, FDM is the most popular one because it is inexpensive and can process with multiples materials. Layered surface, that has high roughness, is obtained with the technology due to layer-by-layer based process. This result highly decreases value of the final product. Various methods for postprocessing were proposed to achieve fine surface. Among them, vapor smoothing process is one of… CONTINUE READING
