Hi,
how can I achieve the best surface. with no bumps and no printing layers. I would not polish afterwards. White detail or FUD?
Thanks Kai

FUD is more accurate and has thinner layering than detail, but there be the inherent signs of the 'built up in layers' process that is 3D printing.

Maybe Glossy Silver could work, but for areas that can't be polished, there will still be layereing.
