Short run production can be technically challenging, costly, and slow. By leveraging 3D printing, more efficient, and cost-effective workflows can be achieved. Companies like OXO are able to rapidly cast silicone parts using molds they've 3D printed in-house.

In this webinar, learn the step-by-step process of how to use RTV moldmaking and in-house 3D printing to rapidly produce silicone parts. You'll hear from senior product engineer at OXO, Mack Mor, who will teach you his tips and tricks with casting silicone into 3D printed molds.

 

Primary Topics:

  • The seven specific steps you can take to perform quick silicone casting with in-house 3D printed molds.
  • How OXO created a gasket for a cocktail shaker using 3D printing.
  • Best practices for mold design, alignment features, and material selection for RTV moldmaking.
