Printed Prototypes Feature Overmolded Parts

Any engineer working with CAD/CAM software knows the value of having a physical model in hand. Now, thanks to advanced 3D printing technology, engineers can create prototype models featuring overmolded or soft touch parts – all in one procedure.

Additive manufacturing technology has advanced so far that 3D printed prototypes are not only used for design validation, but also for testing form, fit, and function. Now, thanks to advanced 3D printing technology, engineers can create prototype models featuring overmolded or soft touch parts, all in one procedure. Traditionally an overmold or soft touch part - as commonly found on power tools, consumer electronics, and medical devices - takes days to create and produce. With PolyJet Connex technology, these parts can be made simultaneously, saving time and costs. Resolution is high and multiple flexibilities or durometers are possible. Join Stratasys and PolyJet expert, Randy Stevens, for a presentation devoted to multi-material 3D printing solutions for enhanced prototype development.
