Materialise Software Used to Optimize Conformal Cooling Tooling Design of 3D Printed Metal Mold for Toy Car

Conformal cooling channels are often used in molds, 3D printed or otherwise, to achieve more efficient cooling and higher performance levels. French toy manufacturer Smoby recently turned to Materialise for…

Building Conformal Cooling Channels Using 3D Printing To Reduce Warpage and Cooling Time

In injection molding, parts are cooled by building channels throughout them. Those channels are typically straight lines, which can result in uneven cooling. Much more even, efficient cooling can be…

3D Printing Studied as a Way to Produce Tooling for Injection Molding

Injection molding is one of the more traditional manufacturing technologies that 3D printing is striving to replace – at least in some applications. 3D printing will likely never fully replace…
