Then, what kind of paint do you use for PLA?
Also Know, do you need to prime PLA before painting? Priming is necessary because paints will never hide all the flaws, especially when you're aiming for a near-perfect object. Go for a primer that is compatible with your plastic. We prefer using a spray-on primer because it can quickly cover the entire surface with an even coating.

How do I get a smooth finish on a 3d printer?
Sanding. Sanding the ABS print is simple and straightforward. First start with 100 - 200 grit sandpaper to remove stepping lines and then gradually increase up to 600 grit to achieve a smooth finish without sanding lines. Pro Tip: Sand in small circular movements evenly across the surface of the part.
