How to 3D Print Molds and Patterns for Composite Part Manufacturing
Why you should watch
Creating composite molds from foam, plastic, or metal with traditional processes like machining or manual fabrication is time-consuming to do in-house and expensive to outsource. Today, more and more engineers are turning to precise, low-cost 3D printers to increase geometric freedom, cut lead times, and save significant cost in the composite production process.
In this webinar, we’ll look at how Panoz Racing is using 3D printing to produce composite parts for their custom race cars. Listen to Tad Young, design engineer at Panoz, and Kevin Gautier, applications engineer at Formlabs, walk through the Panoz case study and two step-by-step workflows for using 3D printing in composite manufacturing.
