Why F1 Engines are Built with Sand

Sand printing is similar to 3D printing; layers of 0.25mm thick sand are ‘printed’ onto a jobbox with a layer of chemical binder in between allowing for complex 3D shapes to be made, slice by slice, layer by layer. It's so good that F1, LMP1, LMP2, WRC, WRX and Moto GP use this tech to make all sorts of parts. So how does it work and is it the way of the future?

  • Your explanation is exactly 100% wrong. 2 mm thermostat is not 10x0,2mm sand. Also, not 20x 0,1mm = WRONG!!! You must make the outside of the thermostat in the sand, not the material wanted to remain. It is negative moulding not positive.

  • holy Fuck this is boring ..and I sit through the videos of that kid doing all the math in car videos all the time.. This tech knowdledge to me is pointless because the process of doing this is soooo fucking expensive it would cost more then all the cars I have ever owned as well as the homes ... so pretty much useless information

  • Nice video, good basic explanations. I addition to bottom up, you might mention that for some years now high stress parts casting has been done under vacuum to reduce gaps and contamination of the crystal structure. This allows for greater strength and lighter weight since the parts can use less material.

  • Isn’t it kinda ironic that you use a metal mold, to make a sand mold, to then make a metal part.

  • Um.... No F1 Engine maker is going to 3d print a sand casting for a part lol...... If anything they will Print the part over and over and test fit it till they get what they want to use from a laser cured Light Reisen printer. Extremely high resolution vs sand casting Garbage casting lol.... Then they put the 3d printed model in a silica ceramic mix and shake it for about 2 hours release all the air and let it dry. They heat the mold up after and bake it for a few hours to cure it and in the process the 3d printed model is now turned to dust and your ready to cast a part with perfect dimensions. It's How they do most race engines casted part. Maybe 20 years ago when they invented Sand casting printers this was high tech... No one uses sand anymore to much that gets stuck in the mix and causes metal imperfections.

  • HOURS PER GALLON. Never liked MPG, it didn't make sense when I was sitting in bumper to bumper traffic in Seattle. Some weeks I would get 0 (zero) miles per gallon, while waiting in traffic, then calling the Tow truck because my 35mpg car was out of gas. Totally made sense when I rented a tractor for the weekend, and it clocked Hours used, which could be calculated out to Hours per gallon of diesel. Why don't cars do this??

  • This was actually entertaining, was hoping to see a little more discovery Channel footage, ie the actual process in real life, not an animation, but still really good way of explaining it. Would you be able to, say, build a model big enough to manufacture large containers vessel parts for sea? And I know some metals/alloys need to go through different or multiple processes to make it stronger so how would that work with sand molds?

  • Instead of flipping the image making the video black and white and then inverting the black and white would be better. To represent the sandcast mold. I figured you were talking about the part not needing draft as well as being able to get away with different if not lower core strength because you don't have to assemble the cores. My metallurgy isn't good enough because then I would know if they use nitrogen in the sand casting to avoid ceramic creation.

  • i used to make intake manifolds for honda cars at a warehouse we had a machine that baked and made the sand molds then i sanded all the casting lines out of the sand mold then put the molds into my casting dies and hit the buttons a giant laddle made of fiberglass like material would dip into a well filled with molten aluminum fill up and poor it into my casting machine

  • Can you do an episode about wheel shrowd from the F1 cars of 2009 please? How does the wheel shrowd stay still while the wheels turning? How does the shrowd impact the car aerodynamically? (Teams also got low drag and high downforce versions of them.) It has baffled me for a long time, really hope to understand it. And I heard some people said that the shrowd may come back in 2022, is that true?

  • Amazing video and very down to the details... but I got lost without some pictures or examples, or videos... the graphs help but, hard to visualize some times... I think is also to find some good examples of those machines working or even didactic ones as the parts are important are internal... the magic happens inside.
