MadeSolid FireCast Resin – Investment Casting Resin for 3D Printers #3DxJewelry #3DPMetal #3DThursday #3DPrinting

A very exciting development has arrived for those using desktop SLA printers to create investment casting models for jewelry and other small, high-resolution parts: a print material specifically designed to suit ash-less burn out. While many designers have found routes for investment casting that suit more typical 3D printing materials, this is the first time that we are seeing directly-printed materials for desktop machines that functions more similar to the extremely high-end wax and otherwise industrial printers designed specifically with jewelry and fine metal parts in mind. Thanks to Matt Stultz/3DPPVD for the tip!

MadeSolid FireCast Resin – Investment Casting Resin for 3D Printers:

FireCast Resin is the latest development from the MadeSolid Lab. This resin is designed specifically for investment casting resin. Prints burn out clean with little to no ash. There is little thermal expansion during the heating phase.

Shrinkage is minimal from printing and post-curing until burnout. Many SLA and DLP printers are compatible with FireCast Resin including the Deep Imager 5 and Form1.

The resin is less viscous than most other resins and is easier to clean out from vats and off prints. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to change their printer to allow for casting parts

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
