In the first two parts of this series, we detailed the many benefits of printing injection molds on a 3D printer rather than producing them by more traditional means. One of the most compelling arguments for this is the incredible cost and time savings related to 3D print injection molds. But, there are some limitations. Specific design considerations and modifications need to be evaluated thoroughly before embarking on a 3D printed mold project.
Imagine that your project has met all of the criteria and you have successfully printed a mold. Now, what do you do with it? Here are some tips regarding running injection mold equipment with printed molds.Read More
