A new process for patterned thermoforming?

3D Printing Industry

Thermoforming is, of course, nothing new. It has been used for decades and in 2003 there were 150 thin gauge thermoformers in […]. By Nick Hall. A Swiss team has proposed a new method for produced patterned thermoformed industrial products from a computer model. This could streamline mass production, revolutionize the plastics industry and even open up patterned thermoforming.
