(453) Improve the Finish on 3D Prints (Makerbot)

This 3D printing video was interesting:

Tired of sanding, filing and spraying poly on your 3D prints to make them presentable? I found a way to SAFELY and inexpensively smooth the finish using an acetone “steamer”. Only 30 seconds will give your rough looking 3D prints a glass-like finish. MUCH easier than hours of hand finishing and spraying with polyurethane.
