Thanks for your response.
I'm impressed that you've transitioned all the way. Gives me further confidence in the 3D printing technology.
Neither you nor I have mentioned the resin printers. I think that they need more time to mature. Interesting concept though.
Regarding painting...you say that you airbrush. What primer do you use? You are priming plastics.

As an old (67) woodworker I had some initial reservations about both CNC and 3D printing. I have great respect for the craftsmen that can create wood objects that I don't have the talent nor patience to make. Also being an engineer, I'm intrigued by technology and while some may consider it a shortcut, these TOOLs allow me to create things, very challenging things, that I would probably give up on. Anyway, I got tired of wood dust and totally transitioned to 3D printing. I'm willing to accept the scorn of the purests, but for most people, they just appreciate the creative effort in my designs. I airbrush my work so the material, plastic vs. wood, is immaterial. To reiterate, I'm in awe of someone who can create a 40 tooth gear by hand.
