The useage of the new 3D technologies has contributed to a major breakthrough in the production of premium quality cast parts, especially in the investment casting foundry business.
The useage of 3D programs such as Solidworks (and other ones like that) enables the foundry to propose design changes to assure an optimal yield of the parts resulting in a cheaper price combined to a greater level of quality of the parts.
Also, the 3D simulation process contributes to select the optimal parameters to create an efficient gating & risering system to avoid major defects in the part at the solidification stage.
Finally, the 3D printing technology enables the foundry to produce a limited number of parts (when at the R&D stage or for limited number of parts required once) and avoid to charge the customer with a costly production tooling equipment; while delivering the samples order faster.
