MONARCHIE - Moulds & Cores Structured by 3D Sand Printing


3D sand printing has a big impact on foundrymen's traditional know-how because there are no tools and there is a wide range of possible forms. The MONARCHIES project aims to design and manufacture architectural moulds and cores, integrating new functionalities into the moulds and parts. This new mould-making technology will permit the integration of new functionalities such as vents, coolers and sensor supports. This will lead to complete integration and overcome certain problems with 3D printing in small series.
