MODIFI3D 3D Print Finishing Tool
Speed up the finishing of your 3D prints
In a perfect world, all 3D prints would come out of the printer, ready to use with no additional steps. However, designing parts to print cleanly without supports is not always possible, and there are times when you need to modify, touch up, or repair the printed object. The MODIFI3D is a useful, low cost tool designed to speed up the finishing work needed to make successful parts.
The MODIFI3D heated tool offers four interchangeable tips to finish, repair and modify 3D printed parts. The heated tips speeds up the work that would otherwise require sanding, scraping, and trimming of the prints. It pen-like form makes the MODIFI3D comfortable to use, and easy to control when precision is important.
MODIFI3D works well with common 3D printing filament, and its four specially coated tips are designed to prevent plastic from sticking to them. Should they need to be cleaned, just let the tips cool off until they are warm, and wipe with a soft damn cloth. (Please avoid abrasive materials while using or cleaning the tools, as abrasives [including abrasive filament] can quickly wear down the coating).
The MODIFI3D tool works by connecting to a USB power source with its included USB A cable. Use it with your computer, wall adapter, or even a portable USB battery pack!
