How to Cast Metal Parts from 3D Prints

Sylatech is an investment casting firm that uses 3D printing to speed up their rapid prototyping process. Sylatech offers services in CNC machining, radio frequency, microwave manufacturing, and investment casting.

They have been around for over 53 years and have customers in aerospace, space, defense, medical, automotive and construction.

Sylatech uses 3D printing as part of their investment casting process. Before using Ultimaker 3D printers, customers had to directly invest in tooling needed for making their specific design in metal.

However, if their metal part needs modifications, this can become a time consuming and costly addition to the process.

Using an Ultimaker, the prototype can be finalized before investing in tooling for larger volume productions, cutting the risk of such changes.
