RTV Molding With FDM Patterns

Download the free guide

Room temperature vulcanization (RTV) molding is an affordable solution for prototyping, functional testing, product demonstrations and short-run production applications.

Machining patterns for silicone molds is expensive, requires lead times of one to two weeks, and limits the geometric complexity of molded parts. These factors diminish the value of silicone molding and present obstacles to design revision.

3D printing patterns using FDM technology can significantly reduce mold-making time and provide the flexibility to incorporate intricate or complex features without added time or cost.
