Post Processing in 3D Printing

Post-processing is a crucial step in the 3D printing workflow, as it enhances the quality and aesthetics of printed objects. Zortrax, a leading manufacturer in the 3D printing industry, has introduced a groundbreaking solution to streamline and automate the post-processing process with the Zortrax Apoller. In this comprehensive review, we will explore the exceptional features and capabilities that make the Zortrax Apoller a game-changer in the world of 3D printing post-processing.

  1. Cutting-Edge Smart Vapor Smoothing Technology

At the heart of the Zortrax Apoller is its innovative Smart Vapor Smoothing (SVS) technology. This technology utilizes a proprietary solvent to dissolve the surface of 3D printed objects, resulting in a smooth, polished, and professional finish. The SVS technology ensures consistent and controlled smoothing, eliminating the guesswork and variability often associated with traditional post-processing methods.

  1. Seamless Automation for Effortless Post-Processing

The Zortrax Apoller brings automation to the post-processing stage, simplifying and accelerating the smoothing process. The device features a user-friendly interface that allows users to program the desired smoothing parameters, such as time and temperature, based on the specific requirements of the printed object. Once the parameters are set, the Apoller handles the rest, ensuring precise and consistent results every time.

  1. Versatile Compatibility with Various Filament Materials

The Zortrax Apoller is compatible with a wide range of filament materials commonly used in 3D printing, including ABS, ASA, and HIPS. This versatility allows users to achieve smooth and polished finishes on a variety of printed objects, regardless of the material used. Whether it’s functional prototypes, intricate models, or production parts, the Apoller can handle them all with ease.

  1. Enhanced Efficiency and Time Savings

Traditional post-processing methods, such as sanding, require significant manual labor and consume valuable time. The Zortrax Apoller eliminates the need for labor-intensive sanding by automating the smoothing process. With a faster and more efficient post-processing workflow, users can achieve high-quality finishes in a fraction of the time, enabling faster project turnaround and improved overall productivity.

  1. Precise Control over Smoothing Parameters

The Zortrax Apoller offers users precise control over the smoothing parameters, allowing customization to achieve the desired finish. Users can adjust the time and temperature settings according to the specific requirements of the printed object, ensuring optimal results for various shapes, sizes, and complexities. This level of control enables users to achieve consistent and uniform finishes across multiple prints.

  1. Safety Features and Eco-Friendly Operation

Safety is a top priority when it comes to any 3D printing equipment. The Zortrax Apoller incorporates several safety features to ensure secure operation. It is equipped with a sealed and controlled chamber that prevents the escape of solvents, minimizing the risk of exposure. Additionally, the device has a built-in carbon filter system that purifies the air emitted during the smoothing process, creating a safer and healthier working environment. The Apoller’s eco-friendly operation reduces solvent consumption, making it an environmentally conscious choice for post-processing needs.

  1. Scalability and Compatibility with Z-SUITE Software

The Zortrax Apoller seamlessly integrates with Z-SUITE, Zortrax’s comprehensive software platform. Z-SUITE allows users to prepare, manage, and optimize 3D prints, ensuring compatibility and ease of use with the Apoller. The software streamlines the workflow, offering advanced features such as automatic model positioning and optimization for efficient batch processing. This scalability and compatibility enhance the overall user experience and facilitate seamless integration with existing 3D printing setups.
