Injection Molding Design Guide

Design Guideline: Injection Molding

Injection molding is used for manufacturing a wide variety of parts, from small components like battery boxes to large components like truck body panels. Once a component is designed, a mold is made and precision machined to form the features of the desired part.

In this design guide learn key design considerations, including: 

  • Injection molding materials
  • Wall section considerations
  • Warp avoidance
  • Voids and shrinkage
  • Ribs 
  • Bosses
  • Draft and texture
  • Sharp Corners
  • Inserts
  • And more!
