Aluminum Sand Casting Design Guidelines

Parting LinePlace parting line to facilitate mold separation.
Draft AnglesInclude draft angles for easy part removal from the mold.
Fillets and RadiiAdd fillets and radii to minimize stress concentration.
Wall ThicknessMaintain uniform wall thickness for even solidification.
Ribs and BossesReinforce thin sections with ribs, add bosses for inserts.
UndercutsMinimize undercuts to simplify mold creation and part removal.
Material SelectionChoose suitable material for mechanical properties and costs.
Surface FinishIndicate desired surface finish for aesthetics and function.
Gates and RunnersDesign proper gating and runner systems for efficient filling.
Cores and CavitiesUse cores for internal features, consider mold complexity.
Part OrientationOptimize part orientation for minimum machining and defects.
TolerancesSpecify tolerances considering casting shrinkage.
