3D Printing for Molds and casting
Low volume production now made affordable
Being able to print prototypes out of the same material as the final production part is invaluable. By 3D printing patterns and/or molds, you won’t face the costs associated with traditional mold making. You’re also able to create one-off molds. Think of the difference that will make.
