High-performance thermoplastics offer efficiencies and design flexibility.

3D printing offers the capability to make composite tooling that’s lighter, faster to produce and easily adaptable to design changes. This white paper summarizes the best practices and test results for additively manufactured composite tooling.


Key points highlighted in the paper include:

  • Influence of composite cure temperatures
  • CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) impact
  • Tool life expectancy Testing and results
A 3D printed composite tool made with FDM technology.
