    I had to do an internet search of the Ballisticast machines. After seeing some pics I have a better idea of what shooting for. Best of luck to you. I hope it turns out even better than you envisioned. I love this kind of stuff. ...

    I don't get it. I mean, I understand the SolidWorks software. That's the CAD software I use but, I'm not getting the "Caster Design." Could you elaborate a little further? I love seeing new ideas; wether I understand them or not. ...

    I think that the problem here is that the 3D Printing of Cast Bullet Jackets seems to be visualized as being done one at a time. Even with the smallest work-envelope the smallest 3D printer could print at least one hundred or more in one printing...

    Blanco: You're absolutely right. In the last couple of days I've gone back and edited that particular post more than once. If you look at the bottom of the page where it gives the reason for the edits it reads the very thing you've mentioned. It...

    Yes I have seen the SLS metal 3D printer you've mentioned. Unfortunately for me I don't have the tech-saavy to build one for myself and the latest desktop models that are on the market are still out of my budget range. Just today I came across...

    I didn't think I was coming off as "Defensive" but, from your perspective you're most likely right. Different folks interpret things in different ways. Sorry for any offense. Being defensive or offensive was not my intent. HollowPoint

    The price of 3D printers vary from as low as four hundred dollars or lower for DIY open source kits to as much as you want to pay. Given these pricing parameters, it's nearly impossible to answer your question with any kind of certainty. As far...

    I was, and still am sure it will work. My only concern was using the correct material or print medium. There is one called "Laywood." Google it. (LayWood Filament) It's made of wood pulp or wood fiber; as is paper. 3D printers with enough...

    As fast as air gun technology is evolving, air rifles are now becoming similar to computers in that they tend to become obsolete as soon as you get them home. No sooner do you get them out of the box and sighted in that the next generation of air...

    I know that casting lead bullets is based just as much on tradition than it is on any kind of money savings, but I hate to see new members have their dreams or ideas krapped on by well meaning older members. I really, really hate that. I think...

    I think it can work myself. I've checked into the the resolution of some of these 3D Printers and some of them can put out less than one micron in layer thickness with a glass smooth surface finish. I guess it depends on which 3D Printer you buy...

    Over the past few years that I've been a member of this forum, I've lurked here in the Paper Patching section with some interest. I've even tried Paper Patching of a few occasions, but with less than satisfactory results and during that time I've...
