Low-temperature metal casting at home? All you need is a 3D printer, silicone & compressed air

Maker Chris DePrisco has posted a YouTube guide to low-temperature metal casting using 3D printed parts, an air compressor, and a pressure vessel. The method uses silicone molds to cast metals with a low melting point, such as bismuth alloys. Not many of us have the funds or the basement space to install a metal 3D printer at home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use a 3D printer to create metal parts. Chris DePrisco, a hacking and machining expert from the U.S., recently posted a video tutorial showing you how to achieve low temperature metal casting using 3D […]
