    Hi all,

    For our end product, we are creating a low production run of slip-cast ceramic figures. We want to 3D print the original models and cast plaster molds off the models.

    Does anyone have experience creating this type of mold from the prints? We are trying to figure out which material will be the best for such a process (& if this print can be shelled out). Keeping in mind the possible warping from the plaster casting process. (We are trying to avoid having to make a silicone mold & recast in plaster.)

    Please let us know if you have any info.
