Silicone Molding with 3D Printed Masters
Silicone molding is a powerful production method that, when combined with 3D printing, can allow you to make several copies of one product. You can also create a product in a material that is not supported by your 3D printer.
In this How To, we will show you some of the best practices associated with creating silicone molds around 3D printed parts.
Working time will vary depending on a number of factors. Creating a mold around our 3D printed part took us about 1.5 hours. Casting into our mold took about 15 minutes.
