    All:
    Help! I am VERY interested in the 1/12 scale 3D printed Anglia coupe offered by TDR 1/12 scale Anglia. Innovations, but don't know how to work with the material they offer. Any tips or suggestions as to how to smooth it & prep the body for painting? Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks in advance:
    Joe

    Ok, that's too bad, one would think they would be more responsive.

    Well? Where I work, we print our own parts using both ABS, and recently, Nylon. Both are of the FDM, variety, a thin extruded filament run back and forth upon itself. We apply a supplied solvent to the ABS, having the effect of quickly melting the surface and evaporating away. (This can also be accomplished with any Super Glue) Do not use Acetone.

    Then sand 1/12 scale Anglia. and use body filler to taste.

    We use the Evercoat brand of fillers 1/12 scale Anglia. , and prime with a Polyester Primer 1/12 scale Anglia. .

    For SLA, no "sealing" is needed, but use care in handling, as these are brittle.

    All the parts that I have worked on are 1:1 1/12 scale Anglia. and if needed, I can always find a way to insert some metal reinforcement, as they are usually quite large.

    Perhaps some of the other modelers here could give some insight on working with the smaller parts?
