a camwork-like tool for investment (or other types of) casting?

Question asked by Mark Farnell on Jun 6, 2011

Are there any tools that:

  • takes an STL file representing the finished casting
  • based on input files:
    • the stl file - dimension and material of the finished casting
    • characteristics of the lost wax
    • if necessary, another CAM-like file saying the workflow of casting

 

takes into the account of the shrinkage of the finished product based on its dimension and material, automatically produces an output STL of the wax model?

 

That wax STL file will be sent to either a CNC machine or a 3D wax printer.

 

Also it would be great if that software supports other casting processes, such as die casting, shell casting, DISAMTIC sand casting and silicone mould pewter centrifugal casting

 

Thanks!
