Print used for "lost foam casting" ???

Post by ksor » July 14th, 2019, 4:23 am

Do any of you have exparience - no guessing - experience with filament material that can be used for this casting method ?

I want to make a casting in brass or bronce of a very, very indented and detailed object - I'm NOT able to use ordinary method with 2-3 part form - I have to use "lost foam casting method".

Anyone with experience here ?

For "Lost Foam Casting" you prepare and maintain these things.
- You should be prepared with Gating systems and patterns and they should be glued properly to form a cluster.
- After the formation of the cluster, the metal is molted and it is poured on the top of the gating system.
- The molten is poured till it fills the cluster to make a pattern.
- Once it solidifies all the gates and risers should be removed and you will get the finished product.
