I have finally done something I have always wanted to do since I learned about 3d printing. It has taken me about 6 months to build all of the equipment and perfect my process but now I am able to cast 3d printed patterns in brass. Here are a few of the things I have done.
Congratulations that all the hard work paid off. Looks great. Keep us up to date with anything new you make. This is really interesting to me. I used to do foundry work as a job so seeing castings always makes me happy.
I’d love to read more about your process! This is beautiful work!
Wow, very impressive! Would love to know more about the process.
You can watch the process on my youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZvyP4g8IAk
Wow, I had mis-judged the grain size on the wood and had no idea how large those plaques were!
Thanks for shooting the video and for sharing it with us.
They weigh 9 lbs each. I should have made my patterns a little thinner but the brass was free. I am making the plaques for the city where I live and they give me all the old water meters I need.
Here is the Instructable I made of the whole process. https://www.instructables.com/Backyard-Foundry/
