3D Printing: Part Printing

Step 1: Print your Parts

Your results should look something like these:

Step 2: Rough Part Clean

Now, cut away any obvious excess plastic. You can also use a rough sandpaper to help remove any print imperfections, but do not sand too heavily. We'll do more sanding once all pieces fit together, to provide the best alignment.

If you need to remove scaffolding, do this as well. I initially used a hexagon pattern, and found the results too messy, and moved to a linear scaffolding rig. What is hard to see is the .5 mm indent for where the watch strap will align, and the scaffolding cleanup should not obliterate that.

Make sure your printer is precisely configured, and inspect each printed part for auccuracy! If your prints are bad, everything else is downhill . . .

Now that you have all your parts printed, and roughly cleaned up, let's move on to building the base.
