Hi!

What is the best technique to remove those tiny leftovers from support structures in order to get a smooth surface again? I am using PLA.

Kind regards,

Someguy

If there's a lot I run over it with a blade to get rid of the larger chunks. After that I just sand what ever is left with 200 grit sandpaper. That usually takes care of what gets left on mine. Good luck!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
