Moldmaking is the opposite of 3D printing when it comes to producing a run of parts. The former requires many design rules, a significant monetary investment, and is geared to produce thousands of parts, because costs decrease as volume rises. The latter has few rules, is much less expensive, and is traditionally meant to make only a few parts, with costs staying constant no matter the volume of parts produced.

What you will learn:

  • How these two processes can be combined to speed up prototyping and time to market
  • Advantages and disadvantages of current mold production techniques
  • The basics of mold design and how they apply to 3D printed molds
  • Real-world examples of prototype molding and 3D printed molds in production
