PLEASE sign me up for that. I'm dieing to find some way to turn my Dirty Rat, and other models with thin parts, into metal.

Btw, any thought about offering Pewter? Or some other, less expensive metal? Sure, it's not as impressive as Silver, but if you want your work to last for a few hundred years, sometimes it's smart to make it out of a materially that people won't melt down for coins in the future. You know what mean? That's one advantage of a cheaper, less desirable metal.

Why not using silverclay? It could easily be 3d printed and by heating it would become solid Silver.

Seems to me taht it would be an easy way of makign silver 3d products like jewellery
