Vapor Smoothing Chamber


I am building a heated smoothing chamber for 3d prints. I’ve been using a ‘cold vapor’ method quite successfully but the process typically takes hours. Heating the solvent should reduce the time required to just a few minutes. I will be testing with ABS filament and acetone solvent however it should be able to accommodate other solvents. I have been provided a MAX31856 board and thermocouple which will be used for solvent temperature measurement. For temperature regulation and general device control, I chose an 8-bit 28 pin Microchip PIC18F26K42. To be continued...
