    I am about to complete my first multi piece print that requires assembly.
    I thought I would ask for opinions on the best filler to use to fill any gaps or seams.

    I have seen bondo and wall Spackle.

    pros cons to each?

    better option?

    Bondo, messy and two parts, caustic. It does dry harder and may be more permanent than Spackle.

    Spackle, not as messy, non-caustic, lightweight. Does not dry as hard as spackle may not stick to some plastics.

    I use a plastic filler, filler primers (sand away the excess until its smooth) I've heard some people using wood filler and the such.

    experiment around and see what shakes.
