Application of 3D Printing in Manufacturing Mold

Apr 07, 2020

Why use a 3D printer to produce molds?

First, the 3D printer will provide you with high-quality and highly detailed parts. With the help of 3D printers, you can design complex geometric molds that cannot be achieved with traditional processes. For example, using 3D printer to make complex jewelry and so on.

3D printers can not only manufacture molds with complex shapes but also shorten the manufacturing time, which is an excellent tool for obtaining perfect molds.

 

Real examples of 3D printed molds

3D printing for silicone parts

3D printing silicone mold is very useful, it has no leakage or bubbles. The silicone parts will be very smooth and can retain a lot of details. Silicon does not interfere with or react with plastic molds. The only thing to remember is the melting point of the plastic. At the same time, the 3D printing mold is also very strong, it can be reused many times.

3D printing to manufacture metal parts

3D printed parts can retain the exact shape of the design in the sand to make precise metal products. It can create an amazing object architecture for us, which cannot be achieved with traditional production methods.

3D printing for food production

An amazing example of using 3D printed molds to produce food is making birthday cakes. With 3D printed molds, people can create perfect designs, including perfect straight lines, geometric shapes and circular structures. Use 3Ds Max to create the model, then 3D print the main model and use food silicone casting molds. They present a high degree of detail, resulting in a beautiful and customized design, and the final product looks very appetizing.
