The issue investigated in this study is the practical implementation of Rapid Casting for Tooling (RCT) concept using locally available technologies. RCT is a tool making process chain essentially consisting in metal casting in sand moulds obtained by rapid prototyping. The production of a sand casting pattern is the case study used to uncover and discuss the complexity and challenges of RCT.
