I believe that you can vapour polish ABS FDM parts to seal them to some extent.

Doug -
I don't believe any FDM part is water-tight. It would need some sort of seal coat.
That said, at least 3 layers thick (1.5 mm or .06" thick) with some sort of sealant be applied to the part.

We are trying to determine the reliable minimum thickness for an FDM type process for making a vessel to hold water.

Does anybody have experimental experience with this type of process.
