Sacrificial tooling design guide

Sacrificial Tooling and Mandrels 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.
Download the design guide to learn how to create FDM sacrificial tooling including:
  • Choosing the right tool design
  • Designing large tools
  • Understanding the importance of build orientation
  • Obtaining optimal lay-up and tool removal results
