    3D Printed Injection Molds Help Whale Reduce Risk and Re-Engineering, Cutting Product Lead Time by 97%


    "This is hugely revolutionary for our business. We have already seen the technology take months off of our product development process and that in turn minimizes risk. In fact, I estimate that we've shortened our R&D process by up to 35% with Stratasys 3D printing. Add that on top of the 20% we?re already saving in terms of our design work - well for me, it's fantastic."
