Steel molds enjoy the cycle time benefits of water cooling channels, why can’t Fortify molds? While 3D printed molds are fast to produce, they are slow to process. Typical cycle times range between 2-5 minutes compared to 30-45 seconds for a traditional metal mold. Fortify and PTC worked together to prove out if water cooling channels designed into the 3D printed mold tool could help reduce cycle time.
