Silicone Part Production With 3D Printed Tools

Jan. 10, 2023
This report provides a step by step guide on 3D printed tooling for silicone part production, with best practices and customer case studies.

Soft rubbery parts have applications across many industries, from custom hearing aids, to entertainment props and prosthetics, to handles and grips on consumer goods. Designers can incorporate robust, bendable and stretchable true silicone parts into their portfolios using SLA 3D printed tooling and silicone rubbers readily accessible from hardware stores, art and jewelry supply resellers, and other common suppliers.

This guide covers silicone part production, which employs a 3D printed mold to contain castable silicone for the production of soft, rubbery end products.
