Injection molding (IM): the process of injecting plastic material into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity – is best used to mass-produce highly accurate, and often complex, three dimensional (3D) end-use parts and products. However, the development of molds for this process is often painstaking, highly expensive and time intensive.
The cost and time of tooling molds is often compounded by factors like design mistakes that require the mold be remade correctly or the need to create multiple iterations before the final part design and quality are achieved. It is with these issues in mind that manufacturers have begun to embrace the use of 3D printed molds to create functional IM prototypes.
