Metallurgical Affects of Three Dimensional Printing Based Rapid Casting Solution
Three dimensional printing (3DP) as rapid casting (RC) solutions has transformed over centuries from black art to science, but the metallurgical impinge on the process responsible for change in mechanical properties (like: surface finish, hardness, dimensional stability etc.) are still disputed. The purpose of the present research paper is to review metallurgical affect of 3DP based RC solution. The result of study suggests that prominent reason found to be responsible for improving the mechanical properties of RC is control of heat transfer rate while solidification (thus reducing dendrite formation).
