Injection Molding from 3D-Printed Molds

The majority of plastic products in the world today are manufactured by injection molding. With affordable desktop 3D printers and injection molding machines, it is possible to create molds in-house to produce small, functional parts in production plastics. For low-volume production, 3D-printed molds save time and money. They also enable a more agile manufacturing approach, allowing engineers and designers to easily modify molds and continue to iterate on their designs with low lead times and cost (see more about 3D printing in our infographic).

In this whitepaper paper, you’ll learn about:

  • The production process for small, injection-molded thermoplastic parts created with 3D-printed molds from a Form 2 stereolithography (SLA) printer and injected using a Galomb Model-B100 Injection Molder
  • The quality of SLA-printed molds compared to FDM
  • Differences between using clear resin and high temp resin
  • Common 3D-printing problems and solutions
