Creating ideal silicone molds faster and cheaper

The method of fabricating objects via silicone molding has a long tradition. Until now, however, creating molds for casting complex objects required a lot of experience and still involved manual work, which made the process expensive and slow. Researchers have now developed a tool that not only automatically finds the best design of the molds but also delivers templates for so-called 'metamolds': Rigid molds that are 3D-printed and are used to fabricate the silicone molds.
