Cast Aluminum from 3D Print
Hi All,

I spotted this video, and found it very interesting and informative. If you have questions, like I did, be sure to read the comments - the author answers a lot of questions there.

I particularly liked learning about the investment casting material he's using - combined with melting out a PLA print to form the mold cavity. The process could be simplified for some kinds of objects, and I think adapted to other casting methods besides hot metal.

I don't think I'll get into the metal, but it gets me thinking about things...
