What is 3D Printing?
3D Printing is the process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from STL or other CAD design files.
Primarily using two printers, a FormLab SLA unit for fine detail and a 3DP FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) unit with a large build volume, Overmould can rapidly transform designs into prototype parts and mould tools thereby accelerating the design process.
3D printing is an advanced manufacturing process best adopted for rapid prototyping, complex designs, multipart assemblies, and even functional, end-use parts. Our 3D Print workshop can provide production worthy parts in a matter of days. A selection of thermoplastic materials can be used in the process to give the look and feel needed for the product.
3d Printed Mould Tool
Prototypes are most useful in product evaluation when they are made of the same Low Pressure Moulding material as the final production part.
3D printed prototype mould tools offer a fast, affordable way to produce low pressure mould prototypes. At Overmould, we ensure the product moulds match your requirements and enable you to go to production with confidence. We recognise that quick feedback is essential. Our operation can reduce time to market using 3D printed mould tools.
