New Dome - 3D printing parts - holo projector eye **Sanding**

To be fare, the printing wasn't that bad. I started off with a small file to take off the tops of the ridges, but soon got on with just using sand paper. Quite a course one, but soon found this did as good a job as the file. Next up I switched over to Silicon Carbide finishing paper 177. This stuff got the surface super smooth in no time. Still a way to go, but with filler/primer spray, this finish state could be good enough. I'll see.

The two parts (body & upper cowl) don't 'catch' when you rotate them together. . You can see the sanded (grey) print compared to the 'nozzle' ridged area.
