I need to make a list. I'm already forgetting things you need to make.



My usual list components:




1.  Don't forget to take this list.

2.  If you lose this list, you're dekcuf.

3.  The stuff on this list is extremely important to get.

4.  Item A:  Um..... er..... I forgot.

Would this not work?

Or if not then this?

The short answer is 'yes'.  But I want a more elegant solution if I can get it.

I did some more research on the 3-D printer approach. 

First of all I don't need a 3-D printer for this project because I already have a good sample to copy. 

Sorry.

But the over all process is fascinating.  If I did not have a good sample, or any sample at all, and the part I need must be stronger than any plastic suitable for 3-D printing, then the 3-D printer is used to make the sample which will be molded and cast in another material.  I had no idea how common this process is.  Any part suitable for casting but does not yet exist is 3-D printed, molded, then cast - Shazam!  You now have your part. 

I watched a video of a very artistic knife (looked like something from a cartoon) cast in aluminum from a 3-D print.  The cast was cleaned up with a Dremel and polished.  The cutting edge was left flat.  Next, a soft steel cutting edge was shaped to match and then hardened.  The now hardened cutting edge was then glued to the aluminum and sharpened.  The finished knife looked like something out of a CNC mill.

I am studying the merits of green sand casting - I think this is the way to go for this project.
