Silicone & Rubber Parts Production With 3D Printing
Low-volume production of soft or flexible parts can be technically challenging, costly, and slow. Many professionals use 3D printing to manufacture rapid tooling for molding and casting silicone parts, or to directly 3D print flexible parts. Desktop 3D printers offer many benefits, including design flexibility within CAD software, high accuracy, easy iterations, and quick turnaround times.
Rapid Tooling For Low Volume Silicone and Rubber Parts
Combine 3D printed rapid tooling with traditional manufacturing processes to produce limited quantities of silicones and rubber parts with a flexible, agile, scalable, and cost-efficient tooling process. You can use 3D printed molds or patterns with the following manufacturing processes:
How It Works
Fill the Mold
Directly 3D Print Soft and Flexible Parts
Replace outsourcing and molding of silicone, urethane, and rubber parts. Formlabs 3D printers and materials offers multiple alternatives to produce complex and low volume flexible, elastic, and durable prototypes and even produce end-use parts in-house in a matter of hours.
