3D Printed Moulds for injection moulding
Hi, has anyone here tried out injection moulding with 3d printed moulds?

I’ve done it. I used my anycubic photon resin printer with a high temperature resin for the mould. They were very small parts about the size of a large coin. I haven’t used it long term but it worked very well when I did use it. I didn’t have mould release so I used a cooking spray on the mould. The resin is rated for 200 degrees C. I was injecting PETG at 290 degrees with no issue. Like I said, long term, this probably isn’t ideal but good for a few quick tests before getting a proper mould.
