How to build a Planeprint model: the perfekt utility knife

For almost all work to build a Planeprint model on PLA and LW-PLA parts I use a "snap-off blade" utility knife with the angle of 30°. For example, if you glue together wing or fuselage parts made of LW-PLA printed with P5, narrow burrs and adhesive droplets remain at the gluing point. The easiest way to remove these is with a fresh! Remove these burrs with a fresh blade using straight movements (not like a saw). What remains is a barely visible adhesive edge, which can be smoothed with a piece of sandpaper.

The narrow tip is also excellent for removing stringing in narrow holes.

If you want to buy these blades, just search for "utility knife angle 30°".
