I could take a look at your project and see if I can assist, however, coming off a 3D Print isn't necessarily going to provide a good quality finish going in to brass casting and plating. Time and price will depend on the complexity of the project. The surface finish should be very high quality prior to moving to the molding and casting stage--minimum of 400 grit sandpaper, no build lines, and in a material that can withstand molding. After brass casting, the pieces will need to be hand polished to a mirror finish before plating.


Can you email a picture or CAD file? [email protected]

Dears , a client asked me to do 50 pieces for architectural project in brass and plated gold matt/shiny + silver matt/shiny...
what is the best way to achieve good quality finishing in a reasnobale price.
I can do the master piece on my SLA 3D printer but don't know about the metal casting ....etc.
N.B. i don't mind sub contract part of the project to someone in the US if the time and price were ok
thanks
