Rotocasting is nothing new but if you’re here, you are either curious as to what it is or are on the same search I was! A tool to free up your valuable time and to help you create durable hollow castings of your creations! The problem is that what’s available is either garbage and falls apart or so beyond what most may need and well beyond most peoples price range… trust me I've been there! So I partnered up with my long time friend Chad Kapper to fill that void. 

The whole reason you need a rotocast machine is to create hollow, strong and light weight copies of your sculptures. This will not only save you money (less material) but will also give you a much nicer piece when used properly! Let’s not forget about freeing you up to walk away and work on other things as the machine does the work! Once you figure out the proper amount of resin for your piece (too much will result in heavy spots in your casting, while too little will be thin and fragile), simply fill and close your mold! Mount into the silicone holding bands (silicone is great because any leaked resin peels right off) and you are up and running! Usually a slower speed is ideal but again you may need to do a test to dial it in.

This machine is very capable of turning heavy molds, but as a general rule, the heavier the mold, the more centered and balanced the mold needs to be! I’ve logged thousands of hours on this machine already for my own work so I am very confident in its abilities. The inner frame (where you will mount your mold) is 12 inches, with a bit of wiggle room.

I mainly use this for creating resin art but who’s to say you couldn’t make chocolate sculptures or really anything else that would build up as the mold rotates! I’ve been creating monster toys and sculptures for well over two decades (yes I’m old) and this is a tool I wish I had on many projects and many years ago!
