How to Color 3D Prints Easily: no sanding, no primer, no painting (ft. Paul's Wife)
Today, my wife shows you how she adds color to 3d prints. I have an original prusa i3 mk2s, and i do NOT have the multi material upgrade. I still want my 3d prints to be multicolor. I also don't want to spend years of my existence sanding and filling with high build primer.
What's the solution? pens. Oil paint pens, to be exact. These are not your normal sharpies, these are opaque, and you can mix colors just like oil paints. The results are seriously awesome, and it makes for quick, easy to make colorful 3d prints for your children to take and play with and lose forever. See? you dont' want to spend 10 hours finishing something that's going to disappear under the sofa.
Ok, so without sanding or primer these don't turn out super nice, but you can do it in a few minutes instead of a few hours. That's worth it, right? RIGHT?!
