Has anyone cast from polyamide 3d prints?

Polyamide plastic will apparently break down with water exposure, so this rules out gypsum molds. I'm curious if anyone here knows whether two-part silicone putty or other material would work with polyamide? I know this can be done with PLA. My end goal is casting a silicone puppet, but I have no problem making an intermediate cast in wax to accomplish this. (This sounds convoluted, but I happen to have both a printable sculpt from a CG project and access to a commercial laser sintering printer...)See More

Lookinbg for some stop motion dinosaurs

I am a filmmaking veteran of 43 years. I began in 8MM and moved on with the times, now shooting in digital. I am not a professional. My very first film was a stop motion project called MONSTER ISLAND. To make a long story short, after 43 years, I am re-uniting with my filmmaking partner to make a sequel to MONSTER ISLAND. It is just for a fun project, and nostalgic sake. I am interested in anyone who has or would like to create some green screen dinosaur stop motion footage for this movie. I am interested in any footage out there now that we might be able to incorporate into this project. In exchange, I will give you a screen credit and copy of the dvd when we are finished (next year 2016). Anyone interested, please e-mail me at newparablefilms@yahoo.com  and I will get back to you with more details, and to answer any questions etc. I absolutely love stop motion and want to see who's doing what out there.JohnSee More
