Sacrificial Tooling for Composite Part Fabrication

Create hollow, seamless, complex composite structures with smooth internal surfaces and simplified tool removal, by 3D printing sacrificial tooling with FDM Technology. FDM wash-out tooling withstands typical autoclave cure conditions and eliminates design constraints associated with trapped-tool geometries. This enables fast design iteration and greater design freedom.
