This webinar will help you understand how to utilize different manufacturing processes at different phases of the product life cycle. Oftentimes product developers utilize 3D printing to vet designs before transitioning to alternate manufacturing processes, like injection molding. This presentation will highlight key strategies for transitioning from 3D printing to injection molding, including key considerations like geometries, materials, and timelines.

You will learn:

  • Tips and tricks around designing for additive manufacturing vs. designing for injection molding
  • Key geometries and materials that work best for 3D printing or injection molding tooling
  • Examples of companies who have effectively utilized 3D printing and injection molding in their production parts
