I checked my home printer and it is an inkjet type. I have only been using my office printer since my old home printer had calibration issues. I will try printing at home and see if that makes a difference.

Alright I have printed a couple test models on both printers, noticed an immediate difference, the copy printed on laser had a sheen to it, the one printed on the inkjet was matte. So I cut out a test part and the laser had the same issue, while the inkjet version did not. So that seams to have solved my issue for now. If only I can remember where I put the glue?

Thanks a bunch, helped out some frustration get solved. So I am going to attempt the free kit I found online, the USS Monitor, letís see if my plastic kit skills are worth something in paper!
