Additive manufacturing can now 3D print custom metal forming tools.

Additive manufacturing for custom metal form tooling

If you are interested in creating metal forming tools/ dies with Stratasys FDM® printers, but want to know what the process would look like in practice, you've come to the right place! Our whitepaper walks through the end-to-end process of creating metal forming tools with 3D printers, touching upon the time and cost-saving benefits associated with the process.

Specifically, the whitepaper examines 5 key topics:

  • Application Overview 
  • Custom Geometry vs. Standard Bends
  • Material Recommendations and Processing Techniques
  • Testing Results
  • Considerations

These unique sections detail a breadth of information on the best practices for creating metal-forming tools. The knowledge contained within the whitepaper will help increase process efficiency for some and open the door to new metal-forming techniques for others.
