Sand manufacturing with 3DEXPERIENCE Make

3DEXPERIENCE Make is an On-Demand Manufacturing platform, which connects designers or engineers with industrial service providers. Our service providers are mostly based in North America (United States and Canada) and in Europe (United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Germany etc...). We currently offer sand manufacturing for 3D printing processes.

Sand manufacturing is suitable for large volume and the possibility to manufacture complex parts with no support. One thing to consider is that parts manufactured in sand are not as strong as metal 3D printed parts. These elements are important to consider if sand is the right material for your manufacturing project.

Our sand manufacturing network of service providers are capable of handling a high versatility of projects in differents industries such as Food and Pharmaceutical, Construction, Glass and the transportation industries. 

Thanks to our powerful algorithm, you can get quotes in seconds for your sand project from dozens of manufacturing providers.

What is sand manufacturing?

Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely ground rock and mineral particles. It is a popular manufacturing material used across a broad spectrum of construction, glass, and transportation industries.


Sand materials can be classified in several main categories:


Chromite is an iron chromium oxide mineral that belongs to the spinel group. It is largely the most industrially important mineral to be used as an alloying material in stainless and tool steels. Chromite is composed of two metals: chromite and magnesiochromite. Chrome plating and alloying for use in corrosion-resistant superalloys, nichrome, and stainless steel is derived from the Chromium extracted from Chromite. Chromium is also used as a pigment for glass, glazes, paint, and as an oxidizing agent for tanning leather. Sometimes, it is used as a gemstone.

Zircon is a ubiquitous mineral found in the earth’s crust. It is mainly applied as an opacifier, for example, in the pharmaceutical and decorative ceramics industries. It is also used in refractories and foundry casting and in a growing number of specialty applications such as zirconia and zirconium chemicals, nuclear fuel rods, catalytic fuel converters, and water and air purification systems. Additionally, Zircon is a key mineral that geologists employ in geochronology.
