Working with 3D printed (resin) material:
The 3D material used is brittle and may break when
handled incorrectly. Take care in removing parts from the
frame. Some parts have been hollowed out to reduce
printing costs. Holes are placed out of site and can be
filled with modeling putty or plastic sheet.
3D printing of parts and conversion sets is done with a
wax-like support material. Due to this production method
a wax residue can remain on the parts. Cleaning them is
not difficult but necessary: Remove parts from the frame
and clean them thoroughly using a soft brush and water
and dishwashing fluid. It is also possible to use a
ultrasonic cleaner with water. Redo cleaning process
until water remains clear. A heavier cleaning can be
done with white spirit or alcohol.
Use enamel based paint or something like thinned down
Mr-surfacer (1000) for the first paint layer. This seals any
3D printing residue that might be left from the printing
process. When left unpainted the 3D material may start to
‘sweat’ and cleaning must be redone.
Working with 3D printed material is simular to working
with cast resin. Heated parts can be straightened (not
over 80 oF) and parts can be glued with superglue.
