    What are some preferred methods for finishing a print. I've seen people sanding, coating and just flat out painting but what works best for you?

    Sanding coating and painting :)
    Seriously, normal prep-work for painting models. Nothing major unique to FDM printing. It is plastic.
    Even the nylon and PolyCarbonate filaments work best with plastic friendly paints (acrylic works well)
