PolyLite™ ABS is made with a specialty bulk-polymerized ABS resin, which has significantly lower volatile content compared to traditional ABS resins. It delivers excellent printing quality with minimal odor during printing.
Depending on the size of the models you are trying to print, PolyLite™ ABS can required enclosed 3D printer, or even actively heated chamber.
In general a non-enclosed 3D printer with 90˚C bed temperature and 260˚C printing temperature can handle models smaller than fist size. For bigger prints you will required an enclosed 3D printer (~40-50˚C), for models bigger than ~15-20cm in any direction, it will require an actively heated chamber (~70˚C+).
Using proper bed adhesion can also help printing larger parts without deformation/warping issue.
We can recommend Magigoo or BuildTak as adhesive and bed surface options.

Yes, PolyLite™ ABS can be smoothed with acetone.
WARNING: Acetone is a dangerous chemical, please handle it with the necessary safety precautions.
We recommend PolySmooth™ as a safer alternative to create smooth surface models.
