Do you have a picture, right after the print finished?
Because i dont now if my settings arent good enough or if i sanded my part to less.

Would be happy if I get an answer.

It's not the same cube, but it should look similar

Ok, ty!
One last question i have:
How long did it take you to sand the part, up. Doesnt it take ages to sand with that soft micro mesh.
And do you have any tips for sanding.

Now i am not gonna disturb you anymore :)

Typically It takes me about 4 hours to end polishing it. But in my case while doing this I'm watching something, so really it should take about a half of that time.
Im sanding with 360 -> 2000 -> 3600 -> 4000 -> 6000 -> 8000 -> 12000 grid, and then Im polishing it with liquid abresive.

To sand it down I'm using water, for not to overheat plastick and meshpads, also it halpes for removing particles .

It's paint to make it good looking taht what I showed, but is it worth it? You should asks yourself :D

If you have more questions, go ahead. I know that print this clear is extremally hard and it can't be made perfect at first time. To this level it took me about a month.
