3D Printing for Composite Tooling
FDM Technology offers significant advantages over traditional composite lay-up tooling
Reduce the time and cost to produce composite structures by using tools made with FDM Technology instead of traditional materials. FDM composite tooling enables cost-effective prototyping and simplifies tool design and fabrication while increasing functionality. It can reduce lead-time from months to days and reduce tooling costs by more than 50%.
In this design guide you’ll learn how to:
- Choose the appropriate FDM material based on your design criteria
- Design tools using the most effective methods of construction
- Process the CAD file for optimal build results
- Post-process tools to achieve the best composite fabrication outcomes
The design guide also includes multiple use-case and customer examples of FDM composite tooling applications.
