Step 4

Step 1: A pattern of the metal part to be made is 3D printed from a sacrificial polymer

Step 2: A multi-layer ceramic shell mold is formed over the 3D printed pattern

Step 3: The ceramic shell mold is heated with microwave energy to rapidly burn off the 3D printed pattern.

Step 4: The resulting mold cavity is filled with a metal powder and microwave energy is used rapidly melt the metal powder within the mold into a cast part
