Video: Cutting Lead Times with 3D Printed Molds

A look at 3D printed plastic injection molds that produce prototype parts in final materials for functional testing.

�

3D printing has made it possible to quickly create custom injection molds for low-volume production of parts in the final production plastic. This video tells the story--from part design and 3D printing to injection molding and final part testing--of how Whale, a manufacturer of electronic pump systems and gas/electric heating systems, is 3D printing its injection molds.
