Hi awesome 3D community, i'm just wondering if anything drastically bad would happen if I rinsed off my model printed in red plastic, thanks!

Speaking from personal experience, I haven't seen any difference even showering in my black strong and flexible plastic earrings.

I haven't washed anything in red yet though.

With our dying process, the colors shouldn't run. I do have an Alumide piece that my thumb was wet when I touched it, and you could see for a long time where I touched it. But with dyed SF the pores are mostly filled with the dye and shouldn't absorb much water.
