I printed a van using Elegoo water-washable resin. When I primed the model, the finish was fuzzy, probably from too high humidity or bad nozzle. One suggestion is to use a toothbrush to remove as much fuzziness as possible but if this fails, what can I use to strip the primer off without damaging the resin? Thanks.

Probably Simple Green or Pine-Sol, but test on a junk part first. You will need to let it soak for a while also.

I've also used Easy Off oven cleaner, as well as, what is listed above.

Could you reprint it?

I ruined it so, yes, reprinting.

I think one of the big advantages of printing your minis is that if you ruin one or want to make a wrecked vehicle out of one or something like that you can just whip up another one. Some people used to make wrecked ships out of $10 USD cast metal ships and I could not fathom it. Now that's easy. Print four, try different color schemes, go nuts. It's easier to print another one than break out the brake fluid…
