Considerations for this method
|METHOD||MATERIAL||COST ($/cubic inch)||TIME: total||Production Steps||Time required||Special Equipment Needed||Conditions||Able to be colored?||health and safety||Chemical Composition||PPE||Where to Purchase|
|Glossy setting, Polished|
|$19.85 (plus cost of sandpaper and polishing media)||Sample cube required 2 hours print time (plus 2 hours hand-polish time).||Upload STL to 3D printing queue, requesting Vero Clear material and glossy setting.|
Remove support material and perform additional wet polish to faces as needed.
Print time depends on volume and height of part, as well as other jobs in the print queue.
|Objet Connex 3D Printer||Exposing printed part to strong sources of light may change the hue and transparency of the part.||Yes. |
At GSD can tint with Vero White or Agilus Black. Other colors possible elsewhere.
|Considered a hazardous substance in liquid form: toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects, can cause serious eye damage or irritation, can cause skin sensitization; for other hazards, consult SDS. At least one constituant chemical is considered to be carcinogenic and possibly mutagenic.|
When used as described, the hazardous liquid is released from a cartridge only inside a printing system, so exposure is limited. Once cured, part is considered to be non-irritating and not sensitizing to skin. No other data available.
|Too many to list, see SDS: section 3||Wear impervious gloves, tight sealing safety goggles, long-sleeved clothing.||Fabrication Lab: 3D printing online queue|
|Glossy setting, Unpolished|
|$19.85||Sample cube required 2 hours.||Upload STL to 3D printing queue, requesting Vero Clear material and glossy setting.|
Remove support material.
