I may have to try that. Earlier this year, I attempted to do a casting using ABS in place of the "lost foam". I figured that because ABS has a high degree of styrene, it would vaporize. It didn't work out so well. Only portions of the ABS vaporized, then the aluminum set to quickly to vaporize the rest. I will have to try again with PLA.
