Designing 3D-Printed Jigs and Fixtures

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
