Abstract
We use microwaves to cast aluminum from 3D printed objects. This gives us the ability to cast high quality 6040 aluminum pieces using a 3D printer and commercially available consumer microwaves.

We manufacture microwave safe kilns for melting aluminum. We create microwave transparent molds that allow us to burn out plastic without heating the mold itself therefor creating a quicker method of accomplishing the lost PLA process.
