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!
