In the Moel Rhos paint shop, I’ve been priming some of the bits and pieces I printed over Christmas… something it has taken me a while to get to. A coat of primer helps to show up the finish you get off the printer.
Here are two milk churns (by _steve_ on Thingiverse) both printed in PLA the one on the left at 0.18mm resolution and the one on the right at 0.08mm resolution, hopefully you can see the difference in the pic, although in real life at >0.5m away I’m not sure you would. So maybe not the 3x longer print time…
Here are a couple of oil barrels printed in ABS at high res. Unlike the milk churns, whose handles still need a bit of tidying, there’s not much to do here.
Finally a hyper resolution PLA cow. Bit of roughness around the head and back (printed upside down, this is where the supports go). But cows are hairy anyway, right? So I might not bother to clean up too much.
