3D printing (3DP) is a rapid prototyping technology. It works basically the same as ordinary printers, but the printing materials are somewhat different. The printing materials of ordinary printers are ink and paper, while 3D printers are filled with metals, ceramics, plastics, sand, etc. The "printing materials" are real raw materials. After the printer is connected to the computer, the "printing materials" can be superimposed layer by layer through computer control. It builds a print by printing layer by layer based on a digital model file. Finally turn the blueprint on the computer into a real thing.
So what is the relationship between 3D printing and the mold industry? As you can imagine, if some tools and models in the mold industry can be realized through 3D printing technology, then both in terms of manpower and material resources, we can reduce our consumption a lot.
Moreover, the products printed by 3D printing technology are also guaranteed in terms of hardness and quality. Whether it's screws, molds, small tools, or even some specific hardware tools, they can all be printed.
It seems that the 3D printing industry may indeed have a strong impact on the mold industry. It can be combined with mold technology to produce a variety of mold products, which may be a huge leap for the mold industry.
Every new design innovation and improvement may bring new influences to different industries. We should not be limited to a fixed way of thinking but should carry out the subsequent work with an innovative spirit.
