electro plating is way better than cast super clean and simple

Can you share all printing settings necessary for bronze pla? recommended platform temp, extruder temp, speed, etc. Thanks.

This was not printed with bronze PLA. It was printed in regular PLA and then investment cast into solid bronze using an investment casting process.
If you're looking for guidance on printing with colorFabb bronzefill PLA, we have some here: http://www.printedsolid.com/shop/175-3/bronze/

That is really neat. I will have to look into the casting more.

We're definitely having fun. A blog chronicling our learnings is in the works. Eventually it will be at http://lostlpa.comlostlpa.com.

Nice blog

Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks! The wet summer has really slowed progress, but we're looking forward to casting some of your models as well.
