Please refer to the dimension drawing to check the span length.

Finish of the bioPLA material

Where assembly between the pieces is required, we recommend using cyanoacrylate glue for a quick and resistant fixing. We recommend lightly sanding the parts to be glued.

To mitigate the streaking effect, you can roughen with 180/240 grit sandpaper and continue with finer grits, up to 1000 for the final sanding. It is recommended to moisten the sandpaper or wet the piece with cold water to avoid overheating the surface too much, as the PLA material could knead at high temperatures.
The use of power tools for sanding is not recommended.

Use acrylic products of the desired color with a matt finish (for cement, gray RAL 7035). To obtain a more uniform surface, the use of an airbrush or spray can is recommended. You can apply multiple coats until you are satisfied, leave to dry between coats.
