  1. Re: Ever heard of Colorfab Woodfill? (3D printing)

    I haven't printed with it, but I understand that it is supposed to be far more sandable than traditional pla's. I guess you can sometimes print to simulate woodgrain with some wood filaments.

  2. Re: Anyone have any experience with replicating view camera parts with a 3D printer?
