New to 3d printing just started printing today. As i am watching it the outside is not very smooth. I am printing half the cowling for a F4u from 3d labs.
What can be done to make it as smooth as possable?

    Depends on what you are printing with and what size nozzle you have. Smaller Layer height helps and certain materials you can smooth (like abs with acetone) You also could have over or under extrusion. And then there is always sand paper....
