    Finishing, repairing and modifying tool for 3D printing pieces.

    Modifi3D is the finishing tool for 3D printing, specially designed to finish, repair and modify 3D parts at a low cost.

    It is lightweight, compact and easy to use. It is designed to replace much of the sanding, scraping and lace, or what is the same, to facilitate the post-processing of the pieces printed in 3D.

    It is composed of 4 different interchangeable tips. These tips have a special coating to prevent the plastic from sticking.

    Thanks to its USB 2.0 or 3.0 power it heats up quickly in less than 15 seconds and if it is more than 25 seconds inactive it automatically activates the sleep mode. The finishing tool for parts printed in 3D has a basic stand included and a touch switch as well as an indicator light.

    Using the Modifi3D finishing tool is very simple.

    1. Remove the protective cap and place MODIFI3D on the included metal bracket.
    2. Connect the USB (USB 2.0 or 3.0 recommended)
    3. Press the metal switch to start the heating. A red light indicates MODIFI3D is on. In less than 15 seconds it will reach 300 °C (572 °F) and will be ready for use. To increase the temperature or to reach the maximum of 420-450ºC (788-842ºF), it is necessary to continue pressing the metal switch until the required temperature is reached.
    4. If MODIFI3D is not used for more than 25 seconds, it will enter sleep mode (the light will turn off and the tip will start to cool). To reactivate MODIFI3D simply press the switch gently and the heating process will re-start.
    5. Always unplug USB if MODIFI3D is not being used.

    Interchangeable tips make it easy to choose the right tool for the job.

    In the following review you can see the operation of MODIFI3D as well as all its details:

    Quick change tips:

    Changing the finishing tips is really simple:

    1. Unplug the USB and allow it to cool completely.
    2. Unscrew the lock nut and remove the tip.
    3. Push the replacement tip completely and tighten the locking nut.
    4. Plug in the USB again.

    Tips for cleaning the finishing tips of MODIFI3D:

    To clean the interchangeable tips, we recommend using a damp sponge to remove any plastic residue from the tips. To make it easier it is better that the tips are a bit hot. (At a temperature that can not cause burns, they should be allowed to cool for a while until they reach a safe temperature). Do not use abrasive cleaners as they may damage the special tip coating.

    Problem solving:

    1. MODIFI3D WITHOUT WARM. If this happens you should try plugging it into another USB socket. The USB may not be providing enough power to work properly. The most common USB 2.0 or 3.0 is recommended. It is important that the USB port is below 1A, because if the current is higher it may prevent the sleep mode from working properly.
    2. MODIFI3D IS NOT REACHING 450ºC. After pressing the metal switch, MODIFI3D automatically heats up to 300ºC. However, for the temperature to rise to 420-450 ° C, continue to touch the metal switch until the required temperature is reached. When the switch is released, MODIFI3D will start to cool down and after 25 seconds it will go into sleep mode, the light will turn off and the tip will start to cool.
    3. MODIFI3D DOES NOT GO TO REST MODE. MODIFI3D will stop automatically after not being used for 25 seconds. However, if the USB port is not supported, MODIFI3D will not stop and will continue to heat up to 420-450 ° C. This can happen with some USB ports and wall plug adapters, for example in the Apple iPad and iPhone wall adapters. It is recommended to use USB 2.0 or 3.0 that is less than 1A.
    4. THE ON / OFF SWITCH DOES NOT WORK. The touch switch does not have an "off" function. The tool will stop automatically after not being used for 25 seconds. Gently tap the switch to activate or wake MODIFI3D. Always unplug USB if MODIFI3D is not being used.
    5. MODIFIED BUTTON DOES NOT PRESS. The button is actually a touch switch and does not press. DO NOT attempt to push or push the switch, as this may damage the tool. Simply tap the switch to activate it.
    6. THE TIPS DO NOT GO WELL. The tips are sent crimped so that they enter with some resistance in the modifi3D connector and therefore make as much contact as possible. Therefore, sometimes it is necessary if they do not fit well, adjust them with a small pliers to make them more cylindrical and thus facilitate their entry into the modifi3D.

    The cover of the Modifi3D must be removed by pulling it, if unscrewed the tip is also unscrewed, which will cause the tool to malfunction.
