cool ! thanks for sharing.
although i must say manually sanding objects, any objects, just kill me, I'm lazy, i know, but there is not enough of 24h per day to do all things, so wasting them on unproductive activities like sanding, in 2013, with all the technology we have, i would really prefer to avoid.

I tried once sand blasting PLA in my cabinet, but did not work really. Only thing was the dremel, but turned white like your picture.

We really need to come up with an additive manufacturing technology that creates the final part in one operation ! Bright flashy colors, no finishing needed.
