Finishing 3D Printed Parts in 1 Simple Step
All hardware startups want to show off their production ready prototypes. Thanks to 3d printners;
the process is much simpler now. Although the stringy surfaces leave something to desire, using
some simple techniques, a 3d printed part can be finished to the final product quality.
We used a pretty old rusty Flashforge creator (1st gen) 3d printer that we bought off craigslist,
second hand. The print quality was not the best that could be achieved. However, using good techniques
we could get a nice finished look.
It took us two hours to finish both the parts of Rumy. Total cost was about $25 to buy the sand paper (Lowes) and the polishing compound (Walmart).
