3D Printing Sheet Metal Forming Tools

Download this free guide


Hydroforming and rubber pad forming are commonly used for low-volume aerospace, military, commercial and automotive applications. Because they use a slow buildup of pressure rather than impact force, 3D printed plastic tools present an alternative to expensive metal tools.

FDM Technology is quicker, less expensive and less labor-intensive than machining. It is completely automated, which allows for unattended, lights-out tool making.
