Tooling for sheet metal forming, with machining or outsourcing, can be a costly and lengthy process. With advancements in materials science for in-house stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing, you can reduce your tooling costs by 3D printing strong plastic tools in-house.
In this webinar, Shane Wighton, engineering lead at Formlabs, will teach you how to form sheet metal with SLA 3D printed tools. Learn specific design considerations and application examples for printed tools suitable for your machine shop or assembly line.
Shane is an engineering leader and the site lead at the North Carolina office for Formlabs. He organizes the efforts of around 40 engineers across many interdisciplinary engineering teams. He drives product vision, technical decisions, project timelines, engineering process, and hiring for engineering.
