[Closed] Cleaning up string with a heat gun?  

Estimable Member

I've run black PETG parts over a lighter to clean up string with great success.  I've also sooted PLA parts doing that.  Question is what would happen if I tried running Silk PLA parts under a heat gun?  It was a 14 hour print so I'm not eager to experiment and screw it up.

Just use a light touch. Practice on a few smaller parts to get used to it. I use a heat gun with PLA and PETG without any problems.
