Written by: Protolabs | Published: 08/20

Your masterclass in product design and development, each packed with useful tips to help save you time and money.

In this video we look at smoothing out radii in injection moulded parts, and all the factors that need addressing to ensure manufacturability. We look at part geometry, wall thickness, how to apply radius at different areas of the part. And we also look at the injection moulding process itself – how the molten plastic moves through the cavity, how that should impact your CAD, and material considerations to ensure the best functioning part.
