    gotta say, the first printer using the fdm method is not calibrated well at all. My ender 3 makes better quality, so you may want to consider re-tuning it.
    Edit: using only 10% infill on a part meant to be sturdy and strong is such a bad idea. Additionally, the quality (layer height mostly) also affects strength, and it really looks like it's going to break pretty soon

    Hey Alec, Awesome video! Been doing this for a while now, quick tip 3D print the sprues on the model, then you don't have to wax them on later. I also use thicken command in Fusion 0.5mm to give some buffer for oxidation

    I think that off white translucent wax was sticky wax. You use that to bond the wax to the PLA.

    A vice is a bad habit. A vise is what you are trying to print then cast. =0)

    I'm curious to know why you didn't use the lathe to cut the threads into the brass? I have noticed that they end up coming out cleaner than being done with a Die.

  • Chris Hoesel
    Chris Hoesel 4 months ago +1

    Pretty wobbly threads or just camera artifacting? Also, should be ACME threads for a vise. Nonetheless turned out pretty cute.

  • Crusty O`lcoot
    Crusty O`lcoot 4 months ago +1

    Why didn’t they print the sprues.

    • Crusty O`lcoot
      Crusty O`lcoot 4 months ago

      Yes that’s correct but I was thinking printing them separately and use a soldering iron to glue them on. Slower possibly but could be printed at the same time as the vice.

    • hansdietrich83
      hansdietrich83 4 months ago

      Then they would need a lot of support structure while printing. The printw cant print in mid air

  • The Big Mcskittle

    Why didn't they just .ake a silicone mold of the plastic parts and then cast wax into the molds so they wouldnt have to worry about the wax not sticking to the pla???

    Alec, stick a dot of painters tape wherever you want the wax to stick. Painters tape will burn out with the PLA and wax.
