For example, Objet models can be used to check and validate your design for fit, form, and function before making commitments to expensive production tooling. Additionally, male and female mould tools can be printed on the Objet system to enable the production of silicone parts including seals, gaskets, gaiters, and push-button key pads. Objet models can be easily sanded, dyed, painted, and glued to produce life-like and realistic prototype models for marketing focus groups.
Parts from the Objet system can also be metal-coated to produce short run 'rapid tooling' for use in plastic injection moulding machines, or to add strength for more rigorous applications such as wind tunnel testing.
