Large-scale 3D printing is becoming more and more popular within the additive manufacturing industry. With the industry advancing quickly and showing no signs of slowing down, users of 3D printing are looking to stay on top of the latest technologies.
The investment casting AM process uses the injection of metal into a mold. The prototype is typically 3D printed using wax and it is a perfect replica of the final product. A mold made in plaster is poured over the prototype and the liquid metal is injected inside the mold to replace the wax prototype, which is finally melted away.
