Abstract

Rapid Tooling using rapid prototyping methods such as SLAs' AIM and SLSs' Rapid Steel have been used to produce plastic injection mould tools. This paper investigates the utilisation of Z-Corps low cost 3D printing process to produce direct polymer injection moulding tool inserts for fast, low cost aesthetic components. The application of 3D printing utilising plaster based materials and hardeners for direct injection moulding is investigated.
