Linear Mold & Engineering is an innovative leader in tool building and part manufacturing using additive manufacturing (AM) technology. The company uses production 3D printing not only to "grow" metal parts that couldn't be made any other way, but also to create mold inserts with cooling lines that conform to the curves of the mold for improved heat transfer.  Peter Zelinski and I, co-editors of Additive Manufacturing, visited Linear to film this video.
