nheather Posted August 4, 2020 Share Posted August 4, 2020 A Soviet Komsomolets in 28mm for wargaming This was done in on an Ender 3 Pro with PLA using a 0.12mm layer height sliced using Cura. Overall, pretty pleased with it but obviously, it is a shame about the layer lines. Clearly they are part and parcel of FDM printing but wondering if anything can be done. Sanding is really awkward and PLA resists - I think if I valued the time taken to sand I’d be better off just buying a commercial model. I’m aware that ABS sands easier and there is the cooks it in a steam of cellulose thinner trick. But also understand that printing in ABS is more difficult. And then their are the resin printers - do they solve the problem - not sure I’m up for buying another printer (already had two) at the moment. Interesting in any advice on getting rid of or minimising layer lines. Cheers, Nigel 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
