3D Printed Tooling
Until recently, using stereolithography (SLA), a type of 3D Printing, for design verification and product certification was difficult as the resulting parts were made of a different material from the final injection molded plastic. With the introduction of composite materials, 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.
