All 3D prints are made with high quality PLA plastic and printed at .4 mm for top of the line detail and quality.
Due to the nature of 3D prints and how they are created (from the bottom layer up), there can be some noticeable layering and ringing. In most cases you can hardly see it at all. Although, just like wood, for a premium end result, some post processing is required such as sanding and painting. Items can be smoothed out with regular sand paper (we typically use 220 grit and higher) and painted with virtually any paint, although a primer layer is recommend.
You will receive the print straight off the printer after it has been inspected for quality and touched up where needed for a display ready piece everybody can love!
