I am thinking of trying out casting... and I was wondering what are some good puzzles to start with, and where to get masters? either a shapeways url(seems to be the most common atm) or a STL file set to get 3D printed...

Thank you all.

There're many stls floating around here. You can start with some easier-and-not-too-complicated-to-make-mold ones like the Dino cube from Adam and many others. :wink:

Garret Ong recently released the beginner puzzle pack which includes puzzles that contains parts that can be made with easy one part molds, and they should be a great way for someone to get started casting.

This thread is a collection of puzzle that people have releases the files for free and should be a good place to get started. But be forewarned, casting isn't something that is just picked up, it takes time/practice to make good molds and to cast good parts. Don't let this discourage you, casting puzzles is very fun and the community also likes seeing a new caster on the scene.


P.S. This thread has been made a dozen times before so please search the forum before you post.
