Traditionally, rubber manufacturing has required injection molding, casting, or sheet lamination. Rubber-like materials are far too soft to machine, and 3D printing was restricted to harder plastics for most of its development.

Now, new developments in 3D printers and materials have opened up a wide range of new possibilities for 3D printed rubber products. There are many advantages to 3D printing rubber over injection molding including:

✔️Short Lead Times
✔️No Tooling or Setup Costs
✔️Quick Rubber Prototypes
✔️Unlimited Design Possibilities

Why Choose Jet Fusion (MJF) over SLS/Selective Laser Sintering

With the HP Multi Jet Fusion, RapidMade allows you to break free from the constraints of traditional molds.

#3dprint #MJF #additivemanufacturing #rapidprototyping

With SLS the source of energy is a laser beam while with Jet fusion it is a catalytic fusing agent. Jet fusion also lays down a detailing agent which prevents fusing. Choosing Jet Fusion or MJF over SLS is a 3D Printing production decision.

Wondering which term to use? We get that a lot.

As the simplest explanation, the terms are often used interchangeably within the industry. If you want to be precise, 3D printing refers to the actual building of a part or tool. It is part of the additive manufacturing process. Rapid prototyping refers to the rapid production and short timelines that this process allows.
