Left Drawer – Drawer Handle

The left drawer handle is a custom design. It is 3D-Printed used standard PLA.
The handle is basically printed in two parts and glued together:

I used standard super glue which in my opinion works best for gluing PLA. After the glue dried I started with sanding (grit around 200). Then I applied some filler in order to have the gaps of the glued part as well as any other rough areas filled. When the filler dried additional sanding is required in order to smoothen the surface as much as possible. Once you’re happy with the surface you can spray paint everything. I used standard white (RAL 9010).
