    OK, here are two pics of with 2 ray gun bodies side by side. One is printed in PLA and the other in resin. Guess which is resin and which is PLA.

    Nope, the one on the right is PLA, printed on my Makerbot Rep2 at .1mm layer height. Body spot filler does amazing things.
    That said, the PLA version took a bit more effort than the resin version to get it to look this way.
