Polishing Clear Resin for a Transparent Finish

Clear resin is great for showcasing internal details like fluidic channels, housing LEDs, or creating a window-like finish for your prototype. Follow these steps to get make your parts as clear as possible.

1. Wet sand your part

Tip

Sanding your part under running water or on a wet piece of sandpaper helps you get as smooth a surface as possible. We like to start out with 800 grit sandpaper and then move on to 1200 for an ultra-smooth finish.

2. Use acrylic cleaner on cork board

Tip

The same Novus 1 that we recommend for cleaning your Form 1+ cover is great for polishing as well. Apply a small amount to piece of cork and continue polishing for a smoother and smoother surface.

3. Polish part with a microfiber cloth






4. Finish with acrylic spray (optional)






5. Check out the transparency of the final part!
