While I don't think the ABS material would work well at all...Doesn't
Sratasys offer a polycarbonate material for the FDM process? I'm not in
the casting business, but I know we used to do a lot of SLS patterns out
of polycarbonate.

I do work with a foundry who states the FDM material used for casting
patterns is not good at all. This is a material that is outside the
Dimension line. I've searched high and low and have come to the
conclusion SLA QuickCast or SLS Castform are the only RP patterns out
there that work.
