Rapid Casting Services

Rapid casting fuses traditional casting techniques with 3D-printed molds. This approach combines intricate designs with low costs for one-off parts.

How Rapid Casting Works

The first important step is for the mold to be 3D printed out of sand. MakerVerse will design the mold for you – you only need to provide the design file for the part and we take care of the rest.
How rapid casting works

The additive manufacturing process is capable of creating molds with internal cavities and intricate geometries. Once the mold is ready, molten metal is poured into the mold. As the metal cools, it solidifies. The sand mold is broken away, revealing the casted part.

After undergoing a quality inspection from an engineering expert at MakerVerse, you’ll receive your part to your exact specifications.

Rapid Casting Use Cases

Rapid casting requires much lower initial investment compared to traditional casting methods. This, combined with the flexible tooling and complex design capabilities, makes rapid casting popular for several applications: ​
  • Low-cost prototypes that can later be perfectly recreated using traditional sandcasting methods.
  • Spare parts on demand across industries such as maintenance, industrial machinery, automotive, infrastructure, and oil & gas.
  • Recreating after-market parts where the original mold is no longer available. Other manufacturing methods would require significant engineering and re-qualification

Key Feature: Oversized Parts

Looking for bigger parts? You’re in the right place.

While the standard size for rapid casting parts is typically 1000 mm in the longest dimension, we offer larger sizes on request for specific geometries and parts.

With these capabilities, you can explore all-new applications.

Just upload your part and specify your requirements – our team of experts will help you see your project through.

Working with MakerVerse and leveraging their extensive eco-system to support on demand parts requirements has allowed us to be more responsive and agile.
