print2mold - injection moulding with 3D printing tools

Wear-resistant parts up to 80% more cost-effective and 70% faster than conventional tool making

Injection moulding cost calculation for wear-resistant polymers

Calculate total price including tool costs and delivery time in just three steps

1. Create 3D model and export to STEP/STP format

Prepare CAD model for injection moulding

Use CAD software or our free configurators to create the 3D model.  
No suitable file at hand? 

2. Upload 3D model online for price calculation

Injection-moulded special parts CAD upload

Simply drag and drop the STEP/STP file or select it from a folder. Filter according to requirements or scroll to p2m method and select material.  

3. Calculate costs and request a quote online

Order injection-moulded small series online

You will immediately be shown the prices, the delivery time and themanufacturabilityand can request a quote without obligation or forward the complete configuration by e-mail.

Injection moulding tool for small series made with 3D printing moulds

Abrasion-resistant injection-moulded parts from additively manufactured moulds

  • Cost advantage compared to machined tools
  • Order from 1  to 10,000 units
  • 55 low-wear special polymers available (also for special properties such as conductivity, underwater use, KTW compliance, high temperature etc.)

Rapid tooling with 3D printed injection moulding tool

The fast manufacturing of injection-moulding tools with 3D printing, allows for a fast and cost-effective production of prototypes close to volume production and small volumes made with injection moulding.  This might not replace the costly manufacturing of machined injection-moulded tools - but this is only profitable with a batch size of more than 10,000 units. In addition to the cost advantage, injection moulding with additively manufactured tools is significantly faster - on average, six working days are enough to finalise tools and parts.
A further benefit of the print2mold procedure is the fast and easy cost calculation for injection moulding in the freely available online tool. Apart from the possibility to see the total price as well as the price per unit (including tool costs) without registration, the manufacturing time for the entire project is also shown. First, the online tool automatically checks the design with regard to its suitability for the print2mold procedure - that way, possible additional effort (such as mechanical reworking) can be identified immediately and included in the calculation.
When the model has been uploaded and the desired material chosen (the possibility to filter according to your requirements enables you to identify the perfect material), the complete configuration can be requested immediately or else forwarded without problems for a further test.
