Also known as rapid tooling, this application is perfect for customers working on a tight deadline. It’s a specific process usually reserved for prototyping and addressing specific design issues. Tooling also can be used to design molds for commercial projects to accelerate production time. There are downsides to consider. While tooling can help reduce both cost and time, the application is not as accurate as other processes, and the accelerated nature of the design has been known to shorten the lifespan of a product.
