After printing, there may be strands of excess material. use sandpaper to sand down and get rid of excess material.

use a knife or a thin object to get any small pieces of plastic our of any of the small slits

Step 4: Measure Out the Poly Propylene Lengths

The 3 pieces of polypropylene all have different lengths due to their respective sizes.

the sizes for the pieces are:

  1. 130mm x 70mm
  2. 195mm x 90mm
  3. 225mm x 110mm
