Here at Pinshape, we have an appreciation for shiny things, so we’re doing a tutorial on polishing and finishing techniques for metal filled filaments. These techniques open a world of possibilities for surface finishes on 3D printed parts.
Before you get started, you’ll need some tools for polishing and oxidizing your parts. Sandpaper and steel wool are for polishing, and brasso and salt and vinegar mixture are for oxidizing.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
