Tooling

Thermoform mold sparse print

Tru-Design has experience in cutting edge tool development for manufacturing. Our specialty is creating molds utilizing the latest advancements in composites and additive manufacturing. The photo to the right shows a 3D printed auto hood mold. Parts were pulled within two days from the start of the printing without the need for a plug. The tool seen to the left, is an example of a thermoforming thermoset mold printed in a sparse print. The tool was then sprayed with our TD Coat RT, machined, and then gel coated as seen below.
