Webinar: Metal Casting with 3D Printing – Finding Value from Design to Production
June 19, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
While direct printing of metal is widely discussed and promoted, the high costs and technical difficulty involved means that many products and applications are better addressed through a mature manufacturing process like metal casting.
In this webinar, we will look at how desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers are being used to directly print patterns, how to work with SLA patterns for investment casting, and how the benefits of generative design are increasing the demand for printed patterns.
What You’ll Learn:
- How to direct create tool-free investment casting and sand casting patterns with low cost desktop printers
- How to work with SLA patterns for investment casting processes
- How to take advantage of 3D printing’s design freedom to create complex, high-value components
- How to print quick-turn prototype molds for wax injection
