Retouch3D is a handy handheld device that makes it easy to correct imperfections on 3D printed objects. While 3D printers are extremely useful, the items they produce are seldom perfect and often contain tiny printing errors, extra materials and parts that need to be removed. Retouch3D uses heat to help you melt away imperfections and make corrections.

The device's heat level can be set to match the melting point of the printing material, whether it's ABS plastic, PLA plastic, resin or wax.

Retouch3D offers a level of ease and accuracy that is unmatched by soldering irons, razor blades and sandpaper, which many 3D printing aficionados currently use. This system will make it easy for DIYers and small business owners to make higher quality 3D printed products.
