Sand Casting is the process of pouring molten metal into a mold constructed of densely packed sand, letting it fill a custom designed void in that mold, allowing it to cool, and then removing the solidified part from the mold by cracking the mold open. Sand Casting is commonly used for larger parts like automotive manifolds or industrial brackets. Sometimes, it is appropriate to 3D Print the mold using a sand binder jetting printer.
