One aim of all companies worldwide is the fast building of new tools or parts to start a new series of production.
However, in reaching the goal of fast production, many changes may arise between the idea and the final product due to new ideas, unforeseen difficulties, changes in design, etc. These changes often cost valuable time. The goal remains to find a technology which offers fast building of parts or tools with high quality results.
Which technologies can be used and offer a good solution to this problem?
In my presentation, I will show how it is possible to build tools or parts within the molding technology using the Rapid-Prototyping method, “3-D-Printing with wax.”
