Designing a mold requires an understanding of the manufacturing process. For example, is the application of heat and pressure a consideration? What is the draft angle required? Will a mold design mechanically lock the part into the mold? 3D Engineers has undertaken a course in carbon fiber manufacture to understand the process first-hand and therefore ensure that the correct techniques are applied to your design. Furthermore, have also taken and passed the Solidworks Advanced Mold Tools examination to prove that the ability to utilize the correct tools and methods within the extensive Solidworks CAD armory.
The 3D Engineers working method separates Computer Aided Design (CAD) from manufacture, obtaining the best deal for both. This also applies to the manufacture of the part once the mold has been made. It is unlikely that one firm will be competitive for the complete range of processes and therefore giving you the ability to seek out the best deal for each major stage often reduces the budget required.
