Investment casting is a process used for the prototyping and production of metal components.
At GoProto, we use 3D printing technologies to create wax patterns or SLA Quickcast™ patterns, providing high detail sacrificial patterns for investment casting.
3D printed wax patterns deliver detailed, cost-effective components in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional alternatives. 3D printed wax patterns provide the highest levels of surface finish required for demanding casting applications.
Quickcast™ is an SLA build style designed to meet the needs of the Investment Casting industry. As an alternative to wax patterns, the QuickCast build style consists of a hollow SLA pattern with an internal hexagonal support structure that reduces the amount of material to burn out. Ideal for large assemblies, this process provides invaluable shrink and gating information prior to hard tooling.
