Designing for plastic injection molding, especially in a speed-focused process, is like raising teenagers – some parts (and teens) are more challenging than others. But by evaluating a few creative options, even the most difficult of these challenges can be overcome. This presentation looks in-depth at designing complex geometries for rapid injection molding, applying a non-traditional, rapid manufacturing approach to a traditional procedure to accomplish intricacy.
