Blind holes and pockets are common features of investment casting designs. They serve to lighten the part, provide designed clearances and are examples of the type of detail that can often be provided by the investment casting process at negligible cost to a customer.
A common question asked by Design Engineers in concurrent engineering is whether a particular hole in a part is castable? To answer that question requires an analysis of the four dimensional components that constitute the description of the hole: diameter, length, diametrical tolerance and locational tolerance.
CAD systems have made the designing of parts both better and quicker and have a positive impact downstream from product design. Also known as Digital Product Definition (DPD) the MBD revolution in design has had both good and bad repercussions for the foundry industry.
