Vulcanized rubber molds are used to produce wax models in quantity for investment casting of metal parts such as jewelry, small industrial components, and gaming miniatures. Making master patterns for molding by machining or hand-crafting can be prohibitively expensive or imprecise. 3D printing with high-performance materials allows designers and casters to leverage digital technology in their production processes.
