        Betreff: DTM's Sandform or EOS's DCP Process

        Greetings RPer's,

        I'm looking for comments from people with experience using DTM's
        Sandform process or the comparable DCP (direct croning process)
        from EOS in Europe. The above two systems sinter resin coated
sand into
        sand casting cores and molds. I am intrigued by this method
because it
        allows aluminum casting in small batches that is virtually
identical to
        production casting in high volumes.

        I've not had a lot of luck contacting SLS or casting service
bureaus in
        the US. The same goes for from DTM, as it seems their sandform
        hasn't really gained acceptance with SLS users. I guess they are
        even marketing the product anymore.

        I would appreciate any information on the subject.

        Thanks for your help.
