Pattern Making

Pattern Making

3D Metrology for pattern inspection

The systematic shape and dimension control of wax and foam patterns, wax assemblies, pattern plates and equipment ensures and accelerates the subsequent process steps in mold production and casting processes. Early inspection of milling results with the ZEISS ATOS system helps identify and eliminate potential errors in pattern plates and pattern equipment.


  • Verification of milling results
  • Geometric validation of pattern
  • Inspection of warp and shrinkage (local/global)
  • Compensation of shrinkage, deformation, machining stock in CAD


Inspect your wax patterns regarding shrinkage, rips and blisters for targeted mold modifications and wax assembly control. 3D measuring data of foam patterns, pattern plates and pattern equipment shows milling errors including improperly milled radii and serves as data backup of approved pattern plates.
