Reduce cost and eliminate tooling with 3D printed casting patterns
With more than 30 years of partnering with customers, offering industry-leading 3D printers, innovative materials, advanced software and services 3D Systems is proving 3D printed investment casting patterns offer an affordable way to create complex cast parts in production volumes.
- Produce wax and resin casting patterns in hours
- Create higher performing, more complex parts
- Reduce the cost of low rate initial production (LRIP) casting patterns

Are Printed Patterns Viable for Production?
Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Time: 10:30 - 10:50 am
Sharon S. Weaver, Director of Product Development – 3D Systems, Inc.
Sharon has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State University and an MS in Mechanical Engineering from Portland State University. She has been involved in product research and development for over 25 years with most of her career spent in the design and development of 2D color printers. Sharon has ten patents and four published papers from her time in the 2D printing industry. In 2014, she became part of 3D Systems. One of the first projects she led for 3D Systems was the development of a wax printer. During the product development phase, her research of product usage in casting had her visit customers and foundries that used 3D printers to create wax patterns. She became fascinated with the world of casting, joined ICI and now enjoys meeting people and learning about foundry and casting processes whenever she can.
Live Webinar - Digital Foundry & Investment Casting with Tom Mueller
Join us in this webinar where industry expert, Tom Mueller, of Mueller AMS, will deliver the vision, the metrics and his view of where it will start and what will happen to foundries worldwide.
When: November 7th, 2018
Time: 11:00 AM EST / 5:00 PM CET (45 Minutes)
This webinar will help you understand:
- What the Digital Foundry will deliver in terms of response times and costs for foundries
- How departments in the foundry will be affected
- How ‘unmoldable’ geometries will become manufacturable
- What technology changes are occurring to make this a reality
- How to achieve unmatched turnaround time at a fraction of tooling costs
