Investment Casting

Investment casting is a process used for the prototyping and production of metal components.

At GoProto, we use SLA Quickcast™ patterns which provide high detail sacrificial patterns for investment casting.

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.
