Design Guide: Urethane Casting

Urethane casting offers injection-molded quality parts in much shorter lead times than traditional tooling and molding. Utilizing soft, silicone molds instead of hard tools, urethane casting yields void-free, strong and stable production components. Stratasys Direct offers a wide selection of advanced formula polymers, shore A flexible and foam materials to suit most applications.

Want to take advantage of urethane casting’s speed and lower costs, but don’t know where to start? Check out our design guidelines to learn more about designing for this molding process. Learn more about the specifications when designing for cast urethanes including wall thicknesses, draft, ribs, bosses and much more.
