Three dimensional printing is one of the biggest revolution in manufacturing in the modern world. Though it has many advantages, its drawbacks have still limited the use of the process in manufacturing of metal parts. However, this does not imply that the process cannot be used for production purposes. The capabilities of the printing machines can be used to manufacture patterns which in turn may be used to produce metal casting. The paper deals with the basics of three dimensional printing and its applications for the production of a pattern
