This video documents the process of casting metal parts in tin-bismuth alloy using 3d printed molds. The process involves common tools and supplies - a 3d printer, silicone rubber, a hot plate, stovetop casting alloy, and a dollar store skillet. This method can be used to cast a variety of materials, from chocolate to plastic, with the accuracy only limited to the precision and resolution of your printer. How to cast metal into 3D printed molds - https://learn.adafruit.com/metal-parts-from-3d-prints I built a camera arm to document projects a few months ago. The joints are clamped down with rubber pads between them to prevent slipping, but I noticed the joint at the base kept creeping down over long periods of time (like while capturing time lapses). I decided to fix it with a locking plate like you'd find on C-stands, but wanted to avoid using a printed part that would chew itself apart after a few months of use. I built the locking plate using a method similar to the one I used to generate the waxes that are part of the Glaucus manufacturing process - https://learn.adafruit.com/soft-quadruped-robot-glaucus/introduction You can find the 3d files for the locking plate along with a tutorial on building your own on Thingiverse - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2799692 You can also find the source files for building your own camera arm on Thingiverse as well - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2266891 See more of my work at https://har.ms

Utilizing 3D printing technology, they can provide turnaround in as fast as 3 weeks. They are a one-stop-shop, with a comprehensive portfolio of products and in-house services and investment casting processes, including proprietary wear-resistant alloys, an in-house machining shop, consulting, research and development, and non-destructive testing. Lost Wax Investment Casting Investment casting, also known as lost wax investment casting, is a precision casting process used to create metal parts from almost any alloy, and is typically used to create complex, thin-wall castings. The use of investment casting accelerated during the 1940s as a result of military demand for specialized tools. Following World War II, the technique expanded into many commercial and industrial applications, and branched out to industries including automotive, glass, paper, medical and food. Since 1959, Bimac has been one of the leading investment casting providers in the Midwest. Bimac’s investment castings facility works with a diverse portfolio of castings. They pour most ferrous alloys such as carbon steel, alloy steel, chromium-nickel stainless steel, chromium stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, and cobalt-based alloys. Bimac also pours most brass and bronze alloys. The size of their investment castings range from a fraction of an ounce to 100 pounds. Lead times will depend on the complexity of the part and capacity of the foundry. Generally, six to ten weeks is necessary for tooling and sample casting, and six to eight weeks is required for production.

My first lost wax casting was a total success!! The whole process has a lot of steps but really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. And for the high quality results it is totally worth it. There will be a second video of the casting of Alex's bronze flywheel for a hit miss engine he is making. That video will be coming as soon as I get it edited. Special thanks to Alex for wanting to use my setup to cast his flywheel so I could also do some lost wax casting! And thinks to Joel for doing some filming for me, making us all laugh a lot and helping out. Joel is the inventor of BoXZY. BoXZY is an awesome 3D printer, CNC mill, and laser engraver all in one machine. http://www.boxzy.com/ If you'd like to see more footage, Joel did a bunch of FaceBook live videos during the casting.

Lost Wax Casting with Joe Silvera (updated) This a new version of the lost wax casting overview video that I posted years ago. It has better video and audio quality and more information. Lost wax casting is making a wax model, molding it in plaster investment, burning out the wax in a kiln, and then filling the void with molten metal. The wax model is lost, but transformed into metal, like sterling, gold, etc. This video shows attaching the models to sprues, investing them in steel flasks, starting the burnout, centrifugal casting, cutting off and grinding off the sprues, and polishing with a tumbler, I hope you like it. We offer classes in lost wax casting and jewelry at Silvera Jewelry School in Berkeley, CA.

In this video I set out to show that it´s perfectly possible to carry out lost wax investment casting with very basic equipment and using only readily available, low-cost materials. Here my wife and I use a charcoal-and-hairdryer furnace, beeswax and plaster from the builder´s merchant to cast a 20 cm (8") lizard from aluminium. This is my second attempt at investment casting and I do make mistakes. The main points are: Place sprues and vents in what will eventually be an inconspicuous position Be vigilant; until the first coat of plaster has hardened, the wax model is vulnerable to distortion Delicate extremities are a challenge as they go unvented, yet to vent them would be to obliterate all the detail. If you use ordinary plaster of Paris you must be meticulous about cooking the moisture from the mould in the oven. A gradual gradient is what´s needed, both as you heat it and as you let it cool. It should stay in the oven throughout the cooling procedure. Allow a generous supply of metal at the top of the sprue and vents. It serves as a reservoir from which the casting will draw metal as it contracts. De-gassing the metal might have improved the quality of my casting. A little sodium or potassium chloride would certainly have been a good idea. I might have done a better job of pouring had I been more sensible about the disposal of the dross and not stepped on it. Perhaps we might not have had to weld up the poorly-attached leg, as I slopped metal into the vent of the leg in question, perhaps causing the air bubble at the junction of the leg and the body.

Like all other casting procedures, the first step of investment casting is making a mold. However, the mold for investment casting is for one time use only. It is shaped by wax and covered by layers of sand and clay. The mold looks much like a ceramic container, which will be used to contain hot metal and shape the metal to desired product.

Update: I plan on making a new video this year to show the progression of our work. Better success rate and better looking final products. Coming soon! --------- We used merlin gold (fake gold) during this cast so don't freak out at the wasted gold you see! This is by no means a professional demo of how to do this. There are plenty of other videos out there showing that. This is not something I specialize in but just do it for fun. A lot of material is wasted during this process since I do this with teenagers and old equipment but they have fun learning and trying out new stuff. I made this video for kids that needed a quick reminder or missed the demo that day in the shop.

I was looking for different molding sand recipes and I found one that I wanted to try out. The molding sand consists from cement and synthetic engine oil (other oils might work to). For 10 kg cement I used 1.3l oil. The surface finish on the casting from the cement was smoother and it didn't have pitting on the surface. What I didn't like was the molding process was trickier and it produced nasty smoke. I don’t see using it that often, not until I have a fume hood.

Vacuum casting machines are expensive. But can you make one? YES… here’s a easy, simple construction, low cost vacuum arrangement to assist with you lost wax or lost PLA casting. Many of the parts you may already have lying around and the rest are cheap as chips. Building a vacuum system has literally saved me thousands and just as importantly it’s dramatically improved the quality of my metal castings… beautiful, clear and precise details matching exactly the original wax pattern, with no pockets, no porosity and no sand. This really is a cheap and simple solution to better lost wax casting! My thanks once again to Paul Hamler for partial use of his video.
