Webinar: Break out of the traditional mold – Speed up production using 3D Printing

This webinar was presented live on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Click below to watch on demand.



Testing a new design before costly tooling is created can save companies time and money. For many years, the only process available to create injection molded parts for testing and design verification was to “soft tool” using machined aluminium. The cost and typical lead times involved are often expensive and can take many weeks. With the introduction of composite materials like Somos® PerFORM, engineers can now use stereolithography’s quick and accurate technology to rapidly create molds which are capable of producing real injection molded parts that can reduce cost and time in the product development cycle.

After completing this webinar, you will understand:

  • What is Rapid Tooling?
  • How can Rapid Tooling save me time and money?
  • What materials can be used with a 3D Printed mold?
  • The sweet spot for using 3D printed molds
