I am after my first attempts at making injection molds printed on a 3D printer. I am delighted with the ease of making these molds, and the quality. Unfortunately, the durability of the molds leaves a lot to be desired. Could the more experienced among you give me some advice for a quick start?
- Do you cool the molds while working? Are there cooling channels in the molds?
- What printing materials do you use. What is the best material.
- I have a Formlabs Form 3L printer. Ideally, it would be possible to print with some non-original material. The original ones are too expensive in relation to the quality. I currently use Applylabworks expert black. For injection mold making purposes, can you recommend me some other cheaper resin?
