    Default Molds from silver or plastic?

    This thread inspired me to model a ring and get it printed on a form 2 machine and cast in silver. I'm new to the casting process etc as i usually make game assets. My question is what material shall I get my ring printed in? Can I make copies of my printed plastic? Or would it be better to print in a castable resin/wax, then cast in sliver and then make a mold of the silver ring?

    thanks for you advice mate. i love you jewellery designs!

    thank you

    if you are creating a master part you can print it in plastic spend the time clean it up and them make a mold.
    if you are creating one piece you will obviously need the castable wax.

    The 3D Printing Bureau Service (FORM 2) i'm using have mentioned the details in my ring design will show up properly in castable resin but not plastic. Printing many castable resin copies is obviously too expensive. Can I get them to grow a copy in castble resin and then cast it in silver or metal or a plastic and make a mold for one of those? Which plastic keeps the same details as castable resin on the form 2. do you know? and can i make molds myself from the 3d print thats in plastic?

    thanks for your help
    all the best Montana

    Barnacles - i have asked them, I would assume so but i always ask before i post on a public forum. so an answer will come soon
    montana2008 - yes you can print the plastic clean it and make a production mold from the plastic. in fact thats how i plan to use it for the most part.

    Wow Tomas

    This is absolutely insane. That casting looks awesome, and so clean. You sculpt really comes to its right on such a big object, amazing. Fits very well with your style.
    That print must have cost an arm and a leg tho!?

    Oh and thanks for the heads up on the class, i think i will be joining in, would be very cool to talk to you again.
    Best Regards

    yes it would ... i enjoy the things you make
    yeah not going to be a cheap piece the first one is the one that costs an arm and a leg .... we have a mold so they should get cheaper as we make the second one

    have to get the patina on it and then the glass and ill know the bottom line on cost
    yeah the grow cost ........ lets just hope we sell enough of them that "Amortization" is a real concept. lol

    Hey thanks man, means alot coming from you.

    We have two projet printers at work, one for jewellery and one for bigger stuff. We have printed som pretty big stuff,and I know it can cost,
    but that table... ouch

    Im sure your gonna sell enough. It's looking amazing already. Are you going for a green patina? - that would be cool. Or the more classic brown bronze?
