Start with a good print job – Use the 3D printer’s smallest layer height (highest resolution). On most printers, this is 0.1mm or less. This is especially important for the outermost layer. Sanding and polishing will remove some material from the surface, which can reveal voids caused by incomplete fill of the underlying layers. Plan to use 100% infill to fill these surface voids. For finer features, use slower printing speeds.

Polishing your 3D printing project is relatively fast. For example, using our ÅngströmLap 3D Polishing Films, a print roughly the size of a TV remote can be polished in about 15 minutes.
