    You're supposed to sand the surface first and then apply the polyurethane, let it dry, prime, sand where you need to.

    This is the video I saw it on

    Thanks for the link. Just wondering if you use the oil based or water based version?

    Printed on my Elegoo Saturn. I'm never going back to Shapeways ever again. 10c coin for scale.

    Because Shapeways was incapable of producing a hollow enclosed object, I had to print them myself:

    It wasn't perfect, but this is the first time I actually got a useable object from my print.
    Not bad for an entry level printer, normally it's just for size checking.

    Also working on a hand mod for Apeface so he can hold 5mm post weapons in his ape mode:

    This one's still not finished, there are some clearance issues with his ape mode forearms.
    But his hands function as I intended.

    I'm looking to upgrade to a better 3D printer now, does anyone have any recommendations?
    Ideally I'd like a tricolor printer, but the last one I tried was defective (Geeetech A10T), so are there other quality tricolor printers?
    And given my negative experience with the A10T, I'd prefer a factory assembled non-Chinese printer.
    Australia preferably, but would take American or Japan, as long as it's guaranteed to be reliable.

    But I don't think we have Australian made 3D printers yet, so that might be an unrealistic expectation.
