    "Are you finding it increasingly difficult to control your tools/patterns?"

    Tooling within the software refers to patterns, mold boxes, fixtures, calibration instruments, as well as tooling dies. A huge benefit of having metalcasting specific software is that it knows what a tool truly is and how it is used in the operations.

    The importance of tooling within the scope of metalcasting operations cannot be over emphasized.

    In order to have a quality casting to ship, it is paramount that the process starts out with exceptional tooling.
