So what temp did you use to burn out the PLA? I want to do this as well for aluminum casting. I have read that PLA leaves ash residue. Did you burn out the mold with the sprue up or down?
That was suspend a slurry fs by ransome and randloph. Yes sand after every coat and i put a total of 9 layers on it. You can get away with less if your using wax.Great job with the castings. Very interested in this method of Casting instead of using Sand Molds. Would be interested in hearing your procedure to get such good castings. I would call these Castings perfect.
What are you using for the Slurry coat and how many coats did you use? Did you add sand after each coat?
I would like to try lost PLA Casting with aluminum. Hope you don't mined the questions.
Its really quite easy, but at the same time there is so many little things that make all the difference and every casting is inherently different. Might be easier if you showed me what you were going to cast and I could explain how to go about doing it and why I would do it that way.I guess the entire process...I can just look it up, but your results are so great that if you have any other info showing the process i would love to see it. I'm in process of setting up for a lost wax foundry at the moment, but tis for smallish stuff only. I'd like to do bigger eventually.
