Benefits of 3D Sand Printing
True Design Freedom
We are confident that you will want to experience firsthand what our 3D sand printer can do for you. We encourage you to contact us to see what our team can do for your next project.
From Design to Reality Without the Middleman
Design and print geometrically complex geometry, bypassing the fabrication of tooling to create the core or mold, typical of conventional casting methods.
Drastically Reduce Lead Times
With a dramatically increased design freedom and the ability to scale production volumes easily, delivery can happen in days -- not weeks or months.
One of the World's Largest Printing Job Boxes
Our 3D sand printer's job box has a build envelope of 70.86 x 39.37 x 27.56 inches. This lets us effortlessly scale your project up.
Hoosier Pattern has been an excellent resource for our rapid prototyping mold needs. Just the idea of a 3D printed core is awesome, but the team at Hoosier has perfected the process making the whole experience awesome! The price, turnaround time, and customer service cannot be beat. For all your rapid prototyping mold needs, look no further than Hoosier Pattern!
Print Sand Casting Molds & Cores Directly from CAD
Hoosier Pattern's 3D sand printers selectively dispense resin onto thin layers of specially engineered sand. With an on-demand sand management system, a printhead offering precise dosing of the binding agent, and capabilities for complex internal details. The process produces accurate, uniform cores and molds rapidly, significantly reducing lead time. If you can design it, we can build it.
Our Team Can Help Bring Your Designs to Life
Do you have a project, but don't have the resources to model it? Hoosier Pattern has an experienced CAD team who have a passion for precise, efficient design. The team at Hoosier Pattern has the experience of working with foundries for decades. We apply our knowledge to projects that could be run on small squeezer lines to molds that are assembled and are the size of a compact car. We have even printed mold sections that were used in a mold the size of a full-size van.
When determining the cost for a printed sand core/mold, take the L x W x H of the bounding box of the piece to be printed and multiply this by $0.13 (for most product)
Most lead times are 10 business days but can be expedited for an additional fee.
If we do not have to clean the core and can print the part in a printed box and you can extract the part, cost is $0.11/cubic inch with a normal lead time of 1 week. HPI does have a minimum printing charge of $450 and packaging material and shipping is an additional charge.
