At Isometric Micro Molding, we utilize high resolution micro 3D printing, which provides customers in all industries with early-stage micro part samples, including biocompatible resins. This step is vital to a project’s success, as it allows a quick, low-cost view of a design.
In fact, multiple designs can be printed at the same time for side-by-side comparison and/or mating parts for assembly. Despite the fact that the micro 3D printed parts are printed in a photopolymer rather than the same thermoplastic resin for molding, the physical design characteristics of the micro 3D printed parts are very useful.
It’s as simple as this: designers see things very differently on a computer screen versus an actual part on the tip of their finger. The ability to understand the scale and intended function of the part is vital to the initial development and ultimate success of a micro project.
