Description

Sand printing is similar to 3D printing; layers of 0.25mm thick sand are ‘printed’ onto a jobbox with a layer of chemical binder in between allowing for complex 3D shapes to be made, slice by slice, layer by layer. It's so good that F1, LMP1, LMP2, WRC, WRX and Moto GP use this tech to make all sorts of parts. So how does it work and is it the way of the future?
