We are in the process of CNC routing our plaster blanks so we are able to slip cast in the future for bird house and planters. We ran into an issue with one of our blanks the blank was too wet but it worked out well. There is less clean up with blanks that are wetter.

  1. Hello! I was wondering if milling plaster before fully cured on the CNC caused any trouble for the CNC in terms of rusting? If not, we want to try it at our lab as well, any tips or tricks? 🙂

    1. No trouble at all, the students let the blanks dry for 4-6 days before routing. The dry time depends on how large your blank is as well as the temperature and humidity of the space you’re drying in. Exciting that this is happening elsewhere, where is your lab?
