Lost PLA aluminum casting

This is so cool!
Jeshua 3d printed some mechanical parts in PLA and then did the same process others would do with wax in lost-wax-casting to get an aluminum part.
Doesn't looks like anything you can do at home. :/
I guess I rather have to mill blocks of aluminum instead.

Cool stuff, and excellent quality on that cast.

It is quite possible to do this yourself at home, if you have a bit of space outside away from buildings.

There are several simple DIY-furnace designs available all over the Internet. Look it up on youtube. Might take a bit of effort to get that high a quality though.
