    Default Can anyone here print metal for a rota mold???

    Hello
    I am looking at options to get a mold made for rotational plastic molding.
    The item to be made is about 370mm x 370mm x 150mm.

    Can anyone print that at a reasonable price?

    The usual method is to make a sand casting then CNC mill to the finished size.

    Regards

    Dazz

    Dazz,
    I've not known anyone to 3D print a rotational mold (yet) but we do CNC machine rotational molds from aluminum billet.
    This saves the time and expense of the casting process and provides a more accurate mold with cleaner parting lines.
