Not only can 3D printing be used to rapidly prototype designs in development, but it can also be used to create useful tools like jigs and fixtures. 

But creating a jig or fixture for an assembly line using additive manufacturing isn’t exactly the same as building a tool with subtractive manufacturing techniques. In fact, a number of factors unique to 3D printing can be leveraged to reduce the cost of creating fixtures, shorten their development time and make for a more productive workflow. 

In this white paper you will learn: 

  • What applications are best suited for 3D-printed jigs and fixtures
  • The design basics associated with jig and fixture development
  • The best practices for designing 3D-printed fixtures
