    3D Print Finishing

    If you print in ABS, you can use the Acetone method to get a smoot and glossy surface.Looking at Google you can find many sites that explain the method.Basically it's necessary to put the part in a glass jar (not plastic) suspended from below. Place 2 mm of acetone in the jar and close (the part must not be in contact with acetone).Time depends on the quality and dilution of acetone, ABS and temperature, you have to do some testing, but the results will be amazing! I personally test it various times.You could also heat the jar with an electric warmer, it will reduce the time of exposion.

That's because many cars do not have a synchronizer on the reverse gear, for safety reason. Imagine if you accidentally insert the reverse gear at 70 mph, you can make a puzzle with the gearbox ... :-) :-)For engage the the reverse gear without "scratching" you have to put the gear stick in neutral, release the clutch, and re-press it (obviously with the car stopped and the brake pressed).

Now it's safe to insert the reverse gear without noises ;-)
