Because injection molding is the most widely used manufacturing process for the production of plastic parts, a full understanding of the integrated plastic part design for injection molding process is essential to achieving economic and functional design goals.
A functional 3D CAD model acts as a very effective tool in presentations to customers or investors and increases their comfort level with the product. We also offer high-quality, full-resolution renderings of your CAD model–ask us if you are interested.
Our CAD designers use Solidworks to output 3D models in a variety of standard formats, including IGES, STEP, STL, Parasolid, and ACIS, as well as the Solidworks native format. These formats are near universal for any rapid prototyping, mold-making or further CAD development necessary.
Your 3D CAD data can be used to create a rapid prototype through a number of different processes, which can be used to test the parts’ function and form and saves thousands of dollars in an iterative design process.
A fully defined CAD model may be exported in many neutral and near-universal formats making it an excellent method of propagating a final design across a global network. Designs can also be frozen or branched as easily as changing a file name.
Using your 3D CAD data, mold-makers can create a production tool and make as many of your plastic parts as you need.
