3D Molding allows you to study and design your parts.

During the development stage of your parts, get fine material prototypes in a few days to:

  • validate a concept or the feasibility,
  • check an adjustment and functions,
  • test the first solutions on users,
  • or even perform tests in a working situation

Discover all the technical characteristics of 3D Molding.

  • Final part material.
  • 50 injection-moulded thermoplastic parts
  • Imprints produced by 3D printing.
  • The PlastCure Rigid 10500 resin guarantees extreme accuracy and excellent resistance to injection-moulding constraints.

3D Molding: a unique solution

With our 3D printing and injection-moulding expertise, we were best placed to develop this unique solution.

We combine 2 methods of production in a strategic combination: minimising the costs and turnaround times associated with traditional tools to increase responsiveness. With 3D Molding, Initial combines 3D printing and injection-moulding to produce your fine material parts.

Quickly produce your innovations

This tooling technology offers you a new production method which is responsive and suited for your innovations. Enjoy accelerated approval and iteration processes for the development of your new products.

  • urgent need to have parts,
  • choose a concept and a solution,
  • need for the final material,
  • no solution with additive manufacturing.
