Designing 3D-printed ceramic molds for investment casting
Published on August 24, 2020
Manufacturers are turning to Additive Manufacturing to support traditional processes, cut costs, and reduce lead-times. For example, high-temperature ceramic molds for investment casting can be 3D printed directly from a digital file, bypassing time-consuming and expensive mold preparation steps.
In this nTop Live, Annika Norden, Customer Success Engineer at nTop, explains how to design an 3D printed ceramic investment casting mold for an aerospace component in nTop.
Watch and learn how to:
- Generate mold designs for investment casting based on an imported part geometry
- Add custom features to your mold designs and export them in multiple file formats
- Deliver investment casting products at a fraction of the conventional cost and lead-time
