Injection Molded Easter Egg using 3D Printing

Our good friends over at Proto3000 in Canada have created this very unique 3D printed mold in our Digital ABS material (formerly known as ABS-like Digital Material).

3D printed on the Objet260 Connex – the most compact of our Connex multi-material 3D printing systems, the molds are injected with molten chocolate to create a very attractive Easter egg with embossed surface. Not many people know this, but the Digital ABS material is suitable for many injection molding purposes – especially when complex geometries are present and low quantities are required. (However – please note that this example is just for illustration purposes – the Digital ABS material is not suitable for food contact and foods that have been in contact with the material should not be consumed.)
