Understanding How 3D Printed Casting Patterns Work in the Foundry
Wax 3D printed casting patterns from 3D Systems’ ProJet MJP 2500 IC are made from real wax and drop seamlessly into the investment casting process. No need to change anything in the workflow except that foundry workers can now expect wax patterns in hours rather than days or weeks, and customers don’t have the expense of costly injection molding tools to get the job done.
We call this the Digital Foundry and it enables foundries to deliver a new level of service to customers, while cutting costs and significantly reducing production time.
