3D-Printing processes convert engineering data directly into three-dimensional products through the use of projectile printing technology. 3D-Printing has become a high demand in the “macro-world,” but is a tremendous challenge in the “micro-world.” Products with fine, micro-sized features are able to exist on the surface of miniature and micro-sized parts, as well as be produced in abundance by using micromolding. Micromolding technology is effective, repeatable, durable, and cost effective for many production applications due to high volume capability and mass production.
