    Not US or Europe here but I have a pattern shop in Canada. There are still plenty of pattern shops in the US and Europe.

    I also have a common question , wish you could help me out .I am currently working as foundry pattern maker and could see there has been no invovation or much technology involved in pattern making. We are still chopping the patterns/master patterns manually and also couldn't able to find men's who are interested to work in this sector , only a hand full of skilled works and also lack of projects from foundries. Is this sign that the sector is going down or already depricated?

    Well, there are higher-tech ways to do it, if you can't find guys to carve mahogany and apply wax fillets:

    (1) 3D print your master patterns, take silicone impressions of them and then pour working patterns using an epoxy material like Dyna-Cast, or
    (2) directly machine wood or composite pattern material with a CNC mill, or
    (3) 3D print both the cores and the mold itself from resin-set sand or refractory plaster, or
    (4) machine aluminum coreboxes and use blown cores for the whole job.

    There's no limit to how much high technology you can use. The limit is in how much money it's worth spending on it...
