Casting

A process by which a molten material such as metal, cement, or plastic is
introduced to mold, allowed to solidify, and then removed. Casting is used to make parts
of a larger shape, often in place of carving from a whole, solid material. It is an ancient
process that has been adopted to make a number of modern products.
