Tips from the 3D Printing Experts-
HOW TO SAND AND FILE 3D PRINTED MODLES
When you sand and file 3d printed models made in PLA or ABS, treat it like you would sanding hardwood. 3D Printed parts have layers much like the gain in timber. To get a fine finish you do need to start sanding with a causer grit paper first, then work your way down to a finer finish. If you skimp out on the courser sanding, you will still see sanding marks when you work to finer finishes. Start with 100 or 150-grit papers, then 220, then 320 fine, then 500 super fine, and then tackle the micron-grade grits to eliminate sanding marks. PLA can score and block sanding paper, so use wet and dry, or our favorite techniques is to use an orbital sander!
