Making Impossible Parts: Injection Molding & 3D Printing Combined for Complex Shapes

Producing parts with complex geometries can be difficult—if not impossible—via traditional injection molding methods. 3D printing/additive manufacturing (AM) is ideal for prototyping, whereas freeform injection molding (FIM) is ideal for production. In this video, AddiFab CEO Carsten Jarfelt leads a discussion about combining AM and FIM to achieve increased agility, which allows for a greater degree of design freedom, and the ability to attain high repeatability and precision in a highly scalable process that enables manufacturers to get products to market faster, with lower startup costs and shorter lead times.
