Silicone Molding with 3D Printed Molds
Silicone molding is a powerful production method that when combined with 3D printing, can allow you to make several of one product, or 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 3D printing molds to pour into. To demonstrate this process, we will create a bicycle handlebar grip out of flexible silicone using a 3D printed mold.
Working time will vary depending on a number of factors. This process took us about 30 minutes excluding cure times, which will vary depending on the silicone products used.
