Polishable: The first 3D printable filament engineered for layer free post-processing. We have specifically developed PolySmooth™ to work alongside the Polysher™ providing the solution to dramatically improve the surface quality of 3D printed objects.
Intuitive & Easy To Use: Simply twist the dial to set the time, sit back and watch the magic happen.
Easy to Print: PolySmooth™ is compatible with all filament-based 3D printers and prints under similar conditions as PLA. Featuring a wide printing temperature range, low odor and no heated bed required, PolySmooth™ is the perfect companion to your desktop 3D printer.
Built-In Safety Features: The Polysher™ was designed with smart electronics,air tight seals and more.
Optimized for Support: We have taken our experience from PolySupport™ and engineered PolySmooth™ with the same support removal properties. Easily break away support from PolySmooth’s™ surface and once your model is polished there is no scar left on the surface.
Low Costs: The Polysher™ is not only affordable but its running cost is incredibly low too.
Balanced Mechanical Properties: PolySmooth™ features well balanced mechanical properties, outperforming ABS and PLA on most attributes , making it an ideal material for everyday 3D printing.
Warping Free: PolySmooth™ exhibits very minimal residual stress when printing which means almost no warping, making it ideal for printing large parts.

The Polysher™ is designed to only work with PolySmooth™ and alcohol; in addition PLA and ABS are not polishable with alcohol.
The Polysher™ is designed to only use alcohol or alcohol solutions (with concentrations of 70% or higher) as the polishing liquid. We do not recommend other liquids/solvents other than isopropanol or ethanol. We have written an extensive article to compare our solution with PolySmooth™/Polysher™, and the acetone-polishing of ABS.

In short, yes! Safety has always been one of the key considerations in designing the Polysher™. Our technology is intrinsically safer – No heating is involved – The nebulizer technology requires only a very small reservoir – It is a liquid-phase polishing rather than vapor-phase polishing process (the latter is more dangerous for a number of reasons) We have also implemented a number of safety features into the machine: – Multiple sensors to detect any sign of malfunction of the nebulizer (e.g. running dry) – Chamber open/close sensor (the machine won’t start if the chamber is open, and will automatically terminate if the chamber is accidentally open during polishing) – All electronic components (running at very low voltages) are properly sealed, and no spark can be generated inside the chamber We are working with a leading safety testing lab and the preliminary results are very positive. We are confident to deliver a safe and reliable product!
PolySmooth™ is neither PLA nor ABS; it is a new material based on PVB (polyvinyl butyral), formulated/designed specifically to combine “smoothability” and excellent printing characteristics. It is the core of the technology.
Based on our current understanding the toxicity is minimal, at least comparable to PLA.
No – the Polysher™ is NOT a 3D printer. You still need a extrusion-based, FDM/FFF printer in order to use our new products. Specifically, PolySmooth™ is a new filament that you can print with your 3D printer, just like how you print with your PLA. Once the printing is done, you can post-process your printed objects in the Polysher™ to obtain the amazing surface finish.
