|Purple Strong & Flexible, extra thickness [message #53608] Tue, 04 September 2012 22:03 UTC
Received my latest model in the post today - way ahead of schedule. They look fantastic...
I have a question about accuracy, in particular Purple Strong & Flexible.
I had to sand down the round models, to fit. As I sanded them down - I revealed white plastic below. After sanding all the purple (die?), the models fit together perfectly. But the screw/tapping does not fit, as I can not sand the crevices.
See the next two photos....
The http://www.shapeways.com/materials/strong-flexible-design-gu idelines mention:-
Accuracy: ± 0.15mm, then ± 0.15% of longest Axis
How big is the coloured coating ?
Which colour in strong flexible does not have a covering - (guessing only white) ?
