Hi everyone,

I have plans to get my first object 3D printed. The preference is to have the object completely clear, but at least transparent.

There are 3 options for a transparent finish: Frosted Detail, Frosted Ultra Detail and Transparent Detail as options for this.

I was wondering which one of them offers the best transparency (at 1-2mm thick), and I was wondering if the transparency can be enhanced by wet sanding and polishing the object?

Many Thanks for your help,
Paul

PS: I was also wondering if the materials mentioned above can be painted, and if so, with what kind of paint?
