Producing low-volume injection molds with an in-house 3D printer offers unique benefits including fast development timelines, design versatility, and achieving production-quality parts at a fraction of the cost. If you’re interested in producing injection molded prototypes or limited series in-house, you'll need to design the mold first. We’d like to share an introductory session to get you started with this workflow. Join professional design instructor Kim Olson for a masterclass on designing 3D printed injection molds. Kim will provide an overview of best practices and share behind-the-scenes insights from his own projects.

What you will learn:

  • Design guidelines to get started with 3D printed injection molds.
  • Key design considerations when using a 3D printed mold versus a metal mold.
  • Best practices for using 3D printed injection molds on an industrial machine.
