Kat's Casting Notes & Calculations
Sterling Silver Conversion
Measure the grams of Formlabs Castable Resin v2 and enter it in the first column. The second column is the quantity of items, and the third column is an estimate of the grams of metal, and the last column includes an extra percentage that is entered in the box at the top, rounded up to the nearest gram.
I am working on a fix to NOT round up the last column to a whole number, but instead give it one or two decimal places, or give the option to increase the precision for more expensive metals.
* The legal specific gravity of Pewter in France is 7.764, however this calculator uses 7.4 which is more common in the US.
Specific Gravity Chart and Formlabs Castable Resin Conversion
This chart shows the specific gravity of different precious metals, but also includes the factor needed to convert the weight of a model printed on a Formlabs Form 1 or 2 printer in Formlabs' castable resin. The chart technically is for the v2 of castable resin, but it works well for both versions.
This information is incorporated into the Castable Resin/Metals conversion calculator above. The chart shows the specific gravity and factors used in the calculations.
