Casting Aluminum for the Home from a Simple 3D Print

20 000 Показвания 448 хил.

Returning to the foundry, I cast an aluminum wall hook. The design of the hook had to take into consideration how it would be cast. Every face had to taper perfectly for the pattern to actually release from the mold!

    why do you do alot of work to get the printed part smooth and then mold in that sand? you obviously do not transfer the smoothness to the aluminum part. you should try doing molds in 1/3 plaster and 2/3 iron oxide blastersand (iron silicon) that you dry in the oven a few hours and then burn out the plastic 1 hour in the furnace. pour while the mold is still hot. i do this, i never smooth my 3D prints because im not doing for decoration, but in my parts i get the horisontal lines from the print in the aluminum part, exact copy.

      First, I assumed it would be two ingots worth for the part and I wanted to use the energy to melt some other scrap off camera to turn into ingots. Better to have extra as the quality of the metal is better in larger batches. Imagine just having a few ounces in the bottom of the crucible how dirty and full of gas bubbles it would be!

      Often prototypes are much more expensive than the final product. Let’s say Kohler decided to produce this, they would develop tooling to reduce the cost to a couple dollars per piece. First they would make prototypes. Another, more interesting way to look at it is that everyone who has clicked on the video has bought the ‘experience’ of my wall hook for .0001¢. Eventually paying me $1500-$2000 for the wall hook I spent a couple days developing!

    Have you ever tried a sacrificial buck for one-off casting? Since 3D printed objects are thermoplastic, I would think you could skip a lot of steps in making the mold and just melt out / burn out the 3D printed form as in lost wax casting. Since no mold release would be required, blind/reentrant corners and taper would not matter. The main question would be residue from the plastic.

      The CO2 Rapid cures the sand and Sodium Silicate mix. I just let the CO2 in the air take care of it this time. Silicone is okay for lower melt metals like tin (I think). Aluminum is too hot as far as I know. Some have made steel molds. Most processes the mold is lost unless the mold is to make a mold. In investment casting, you mold wax and make a shell around it and then melt out the wax…

    2. Gordo
      Gordo
      преди месец

      @Brian Oltrogge As an electronic engineer, I'm pretty sketchy on the details of casting aluminium. I'm guessing the CO2 isn't to stop you hyperventilating but is part of the casting process. I imagine you could use silicone to make a mould and use that to cast multiple resin parts which you could use to make a make a multi-part sand mould. Could you create a reusable 2-part mould like they use for injection moulding or does that not work for metal. Very interesting to see the process set out in steps like you did, and amazing that you can do all this at home (I imagine in the olden days you'd have had to carve the master part out of wood)..

    3. Brian Oltrogge

    Awesome video ,i am subbing. I also have done hardset molding for many years in a commercial setting and the only thing i would comment on that i might change would be the use of talc powder. While talc may provide a good release i "personally only" would not use talc with it now known to contain other minerals that are not really good for human health. I use plain flour in a hemp bag as a mold release and never had any problems . Other than my personal view on talc use i am really looking forward to checking out the rest of this channel. Great technique and great narration.

    1. Brian Oltrogge

      Thanks! I am looking to get into the actual hard set process as sodium silicate really only cures like an inch deep. I have also since purchased foundry sand that should improve surface finish. Talc doesn’t bother me as I know it had gotten a lot of attention because of Johnson and Johnson. Just like bags of concrete, if it isn’t your daily job or you don’t disturb it too much, you’ll be fine. I am concerned that people worry about too many things in modern life. When I was 10, I was already casting plaster and melting lead on the kitchen stove!

    You are ruining your files using them like that. They should only contact the metal during the push, then lifted, brought back, and repeat. I learned the hard way and ruined quite a few of my late grandfathers Nicholson files.

      I use light pressure on the pull back. This cleans out the ‘pins’ that develop when using the files on aluminum. If I just contacted on the forward stroke the files become extremely clogged. One tip for aluminum is to rub a soapstone on the file every so often to help keep the aluminum from sticking. Generally good advice though as files only cut in one direction!!

    If you're going to use that as an hanger, why not avoid all the extra steps and use that initial, beautifully finished 3d printed part instead?

      Because of the overwhelming pressure BGsun puts on me to cast something in aluminum or the will delete my channel?

    Thats cool and all, but could have just bought that stuff and saved time and money. Been cheaper just to have bought. Lol

    That's a lot of work for a coat hook! But good work, indeed! Hands down!

    Really stunning. If this doesn't make you thankful for the industrial revolution, I don't know what will.

      Thank you! I coated the pattern the same time I did the mounts for my kayak model. I just used those prints as the wall mounts and I think they look great.

    all that then using jb coldweld? drilling holes then tapping and bolting would have made that bracket valuable, watching people use epoxy is like watching a hack use gluesticks

      There really is no need for anything more advanced than epoxy bond. You would be surprised at how many things in life are held together by double sided tape! 🤫🤭
