MetalCasting Design & Purchasing

Prototype Inspiration

We have touched on prototyping a few times in our magazine and started a section on rapid prototyping on our website. Eventually we’d like to be the best online resource on prototyping methods of metalcasting. In the meantime, you might want to catch Discovery Channel’s new series, “Prototype This!” that premiers Wednesday, Oct. 15. The show’s premise involves a team of engineers inventing a myriad of cool things, from a mind-controlled car in the series premiere to boxing robots, a waterslide simulator and a six-legged all-terrain vehicle. Expect to see the engineers on the show using several methods of prototyping for cast metal components—perhaps one of those methods will resonate with a casting project you are currently working on now.

And come back to our rapid prototyping section over the next few weeks as we begin adding more information.
