3D Printing Brass, Bronze, Gold, Platinum, Plastic

In addition to our standard 3D printing materials (silver, gold-plated, and steel), we can 3D print our products upon request in brass, bronze, gold, platinum, and plastic.  If you would like any Sloris items in these materials, please contact us.

Here’s more information on these 3D-printed materials:

Brass

3D printed brass - gold-plated 3D printed brass - raw finish 3D printed brass - polished finish

Brass models are fabricated using a five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D Printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold. Molten brass is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. Raw Brass is briefly tumbled. Polished and Gold Plated Brass is carefully cleaned and hand polished. Gold Plated Brass goes through a final electroplating process for an outside coat of 22k gold.

 

Bronze

Bronze models are fabricated using a five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D Printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold. Molten bronze is poured into this mold and hardens quickly. The plaster is broken away, revealing your model. Raw Bronze is briefly tumbled. Polished Bronze is carefully cleaned and hand-polished.

 

Gold

Gold models are 3D printed using a five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. When the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold.

Molten Gold is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. The product is then carefully cleaned and hand-polished to give it the trademark Gold luster.

 

Platinum

3D printed platinum

Platinum models are 3D printed using a five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. When the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold.

Molten Platinum is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. The product is then carefully cleaned and hand-polished to give it the trademark Platinum luster.

To print in this material, we start with a bed of Nylon powder and sinter the powder with a laser layer by layer, solidifying the powder as we go.
