Last year Root3 Labs experimented with multi-material 3D-printing to deliver prototypes that simulated a button and gasket that would be overmolded in production. We were very happy with the results and our client was quite pleased that we were able to quickly iterate the design and transition nearly seamlessly into production tooling. The people at Desktop Engineering were also impressed and recently published an account of our experience. Look for it in the October print issue of Desktop Engineering or read it online at DeskEng.com.
