There’s a gallery of images available that demonstrate the process of lost-PLA casting to create a metal object using 3D printing. Let’s first explain the “lost-PLA” process. The idea is to do the following:
Like most of you, we like to watch 3D prints happen. There’s something magical about seeing a real object appear out of, apparently, thin air.
A Creative Tradition Meets 3D Printing The ability to print 3D models has inspired everyone artists, engineers, and even kids to explore new dimensions of expression. And it’s no wonder we want to paint them too.

Want to redecorate your student room? Already tried your favorite movie posters, photos of your buddies and souvenirs from your latest trips but there’s still a little something missing? We launching a new contest on Studyka platform to help you do just that.
If you’re willing to 3D print something, the very first thing you need is a 3D file. But not all 3D files are doing the trick when it comes to 3D printing. The prime file format for 3D printing is STL.
3D printing is all the rage and it's hard to know just where to start.
In the kennel of 3D printers, I'd equate the oddly-shaped and homegrown RepRap printers to lovable mutts. The Makerbot is a golden retriever, ready to please.
