Traditional Cast Metalwork Meets Modern Technology.

Traditional Cast Metalwork Meets Modern Technology.

We are currently working with the Precision Engineering and Manufacturing Gateway (PEM), based in IT Sligo to explore the use of laser scanning, 3D modelling and 3D printing for use in pattern making for metalwork casting (cast iron, bronze, brass, aluminium) and we are looking from something suitable to test the process.

Traditionally the patterns used for sand casting would have be made from wood either by hand carving or building up the pattern in sections.

We are particularly interested in the flexibility a 3D model will give in terms of manipulation, modification and resizing which is very difficult with traditional methods.

Are you looking to reproduce, repair or make something which would have traditionally been sand cast?

Our particular interest is in conservation and restoration of period iron work and features but we are happy to look at anything interesting!

The Stripy Paint Company Ltd



The Company Name - The Stripy Paint Company - What's that about?


In many workplaces a new employee would be sent off to look for things that couldn’t be found as a practical joke. The new employee would often then been sent from place to place in search of the item until someone took pity on them and explained that the item didn’t exist. In the building industry common items to be sent to look for are – sky hooks, glass hammers, buckets of steam, skirting board ladders, Stripy Paint etc. At The Stripy Paint Company we do a lot of searching.
