Rapid Tooling - Plastic Parts


Overview

Rapid tooling is the term for either indirectly utilizing a rapid prototype as a tooling pattern for the purposes of molding production materials, or directly producing a tool with a rapid prototyping system.

Rapid Tooling processes complement the Rapid Prototyping options by being able to provide higher quantities of parts in a wider variety of materials, even short-run injection molded parts in the intended production material. There are several options to pick from depending on time available and material requirements.
