In our latest on-demand webinar, injection molding specialists from Xometry talk about design-for-manufacturing best practices for molded parts. Join Kyra Stawson, Kyle Adams, and Greg Paulsen as they discuss the crucial molding trinity (and how you can use CAD flow analysis to see these) and answer customer questions on everything from tonnage to estimated pricing on undercuts.

Key Points in the webinar:

  • An introduction to Xometry and Xometry's injection molding services
  • How injection molding works and basic terminology
  • Designing with the molding trinity in mind: undercuts, uniform wall thickness, and undercuts
  • Specific design tips to move from 3D printing to injection molding like how to mitigate sink and see-thru on ribs and bosses, designing for mold inserts and overmolds, and adding threads
  • Live Q & A
