PLA aluminum casting process

I think I’ll have to investigate this in more depth, possibly trying a variant with the UV castable resin as well.

(Yes, I’m aware we’re set up for ABS and not PLA on the Polyprinters.)


I’ve tried that with about 5-10% infill but never a shell. Just setup a .7mm shell to print and I’ll give it ago in a few days!

Very nice! I wonder if coating the item several times with joint compound would help with the pinhole leaks. If that was done the casting would be perfect.

I hope to see some casting days at DMS soon.
