Looking to accelerate the manufacturing of complex master patterns for urethane casting? 3D printing allows for the easy production of geometries too detailed for CNC, without any complex manual fabrication or post-processing. 3D printed master patterns can be produced in a single build without additional machining, in as quick as 1-3 business days. Due to the quick cycle time, low cost per part and limited tool life, urethane casting is ideal for casting up to 1000 parts.
Forge Labs offers both Stereolithography (SLA) and Polyjet Matrix 3D printing which are high-resolution processes that produce parts smooth and detailed enough for casting with little no post processing required.
