Rapid prototyping progresses New Dimension BST and SST 1200 large-format 3D printers for rapid prototyping from Stratasys' Dimension Printing unit are priced under $30,000 and have 57% larger working envelope than previous models.
But then you discover a viable option that you believe would allow for completion of the component--using rapid prototyping to create a pattern for investment casting an engineered metal component.
While this year's award winning plant--John Deere Foundry, Waterloo, Iowa--has definitely raised fine bar on rapid prototyping by producing an engineered component via traditional nobake molding in less than 12 hrs, its success also is one every metalcasting facility from green sand to diecasting and from steel to magnesium can relate to and learn from.
Although a majority of these are traditional investment castings, up to 60/month are implantable castings produced via rapid-prototyping using an ABS pattern built by a Stratasys FDM rapid prototyping system.
In that discussion, three panelists all agreed that the initial benefit that rapid prototyping offers is speed.
