What is the difference between 3D printing molds and traditional molds?

Traditional mold

1. Mold durability: In production applications, molds must be wear-resistant and economical. Therefore, most of the molds are made of steel, and some are even made of cemented carbide.

2. Mold manufacturing: Use 3D modeling software such as PRO-E to draw the mold diagram, and continuously adjust to achieve the final molding effect.

3. Mold use: Mainly based on traditional injection molding, die-casting, rubber and stamping products.

4. Mold strength accuracy: confirm the strength according to the actual needs of users, and the accuracy is high.

5. Mold production time: relatively fast.

6. Mould economy: the economy of mass production is good, and the economy of single piece and small batch is poor.

3D printing technology

1. Materials needed for 3D printing: consider the most suitable printing materials according to the actual needs of users.

2. 3D printing molding method: cumulative type, adding up little by little, and finally printing the finished work.

3. 3D printing purpose: small and complex parts can be easily realized by 3D printing, and large parts can be printed together as a whole.

4. 3D printing strength accuracy: There are many comprehensive factors about the strength and accuracy of 3D printing. The accuracy of the 3D printer, the quality of the selected materials, and the accuracy of the 3D model diagram all determine the accuracy of the final product, and the strength is acceptable.

5. 3D printing production time: longer molding time.

6. 3D printing economy: the economy of mass production is poor, and the economy of single piece and small batch is good.
