3d printing for casting brass

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.

Wow, I had mis-judged the grain size on the wood and had no idea how large those plaques were! :slight_smile:

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.
