3D print to "Lost Resin" brass parts...

Hello all,

  Has anyone that's doing 3D printing on home machines used the "Lost Resin" to brass parts process?  There's special resin available for this (it's expensive), which I'm familiar enough with, but what I need is a shop that will take my 3D printed parts, create the investment, burnout then cast them in brass.

  Anyone have a good shop that they've used that will do this type of work?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Jeff

Check your,local area for “Makerspaces” that are facilities that have various machinery to assist in things of this nature.

Also some custom jewelry shops will do it for a fee if you provide the materials.

Best Cast in New Jersey is a jewelry company that will do this process start to finish.

Valley Brass and Bronze in CA is a model railroad type company that will do the casting process.
