Glueing, Filling & Painting

Postby Ikoth » Sun Dec 11, 2016 9:02 pm

Hi all,

just finished a 16 hour print that needs some finishing touches.

I now need to 1) glue a couple of Raise3D PLA pieces to some styrene plastic and 2) fill a couple of small gaps in the PLA.

Suggestions for an appropriate glue and filler would be welcome please.

Also, can I expect acrylic primer, airbrush paint and clear coat to work OK on PLA?

Not an expert. I have only try one product, and it works decent. I use loctite to glue PLA parts and to smooth surfaces. It is transparent and easy to use, just don't put too much on the part or the loctite will "eat it".
