I'm working a model that includes wood cut with laser.  this is great for the tiny details but i am having an issue of getting the char from the edges all over the pieces, smudging them, as i try to sand the edges.


Anyone have success managing the char residue????

Many of us have similar problems, I'd be interested to see if there any new suggestions.

Take my advice with a grain of salt as I am just a beginner, but I was just watching some very informative videos that showed the char being scraped off with a single edge razor blade on flat sections, dremel (carefully) on curved sections.
