  • Design & Optimization for 3D Sand Printing

    As members of the AM committee, you know there are many advantages to the use of 3D sand printing of molds and cores, especially when it comes to casting design, and the technology is being rapidly adopted in all sectors. 

    Come learn from experts in your community! This course will be facilitated by Jerry Thiel and Brandon Lamoncha and held at University of Northern Iowa Additive Manufacturing Center, at Techworks in Waterloo, IA.

    Topics covered include the advantages and limitations to the process; when to use the process; and important considerations such as communication, storage and handling of cores and molds, gating design and the use of simulation, file formats, and key features allowable. Case studies will be used throughout the course.
