3D Multi Interconnect Device Manufacture Using Laser Direct Structuring

LPKF Laser & Electronics has created an interesting video series on the manufacture of a 3D Multi Interconnect Devices, or ‘3D MIDs’, using Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) to create the circuit. A 3D MID is a type electronic device that includes the electrical components and its interconnecting circuits and has a 3 dimensional shape, as opposed to a typical flat …

3D Printing Blow Mold Tools

According to this video from Stratasys, manfacturers of blow molded products will often skip prototyping their product due to the cost and time associated with making metal prototype blow mold tools. The video presents an alternative solution to make prototypes by creating a 3D polyjet printed tool for blow molding. Not only can this type of tooling be used for …
