This is my first 3-D printed object used in a sandmold to cast a copy in aluminum.  This is a dragon medallion from  The edges came out a bit rough as there was no draft angle, but the dragon imprint came out well.  The sprue and riser are still attached to the aluminum medallion in this photo.


  1. Have you had any experience with melting down hard-drive casings? I think they are solid blocks of aluminum.

  2. I have, and the ones I had melted pretty well (along with the aluminum platters).
