RE: Rapid Tooling Sources

Hello Josh (but also other Rapid Toolers),

I am sure you have already enough leads to a successful solution with the
huge response from the mailing list. Just in case you still run into
problems, you could consider Laser Caving; complex 3D shapes directly from
STL-files in soft or hardened steel. Suited for relative small moulds where
traditional machining doesn't work out and other RT technologies do not meet
all requirements.

If you have a spare moment, you can check it out at our web site below, and
surf to "technology / rapid tooling / LaserCav*".
Please revert if interested.

Good luck and best regards,

Anton Gerrits

        We are looking for sources of Rapid Tooling. We need at least 50
injection-molded parts in Nylon. The cavity of this mold is not machinable,

        so we're thinking DTM, Keltool, Casttool, or Wire.
