One Cost Tooling Per SQ/FT
- Minimum Radius: .25"
- Minimum Flange: 4.5"
- Lowest clearance from bottom of tool 2"
- .5" extra material from top of part
- Minimum of 1 degree draft on all surfaces
TOOL DEPTH & PRICING
Depending on the design of your part, remember to consider extra material and other rules that effect the tool depth.
All Prototyping Tools are made from high-temp aerospace grade carbon fiber.
All tools are priced by a simple formula of square feet and depth.
If part envelope is 10" long by 20" wide by 6" deep
Tool size = 19" long by 29" wide by 8.5"
Selecting a 9" tooling depth from above graph at $645 sq/ft
(19 x 29) / 144" x 645 = Total Tooling Price ($2468.00) for a high-temp aerospace grade carbon fiber tool
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Composite tools do not naturally have Class A surface and often have a slight fiber pattern print through on the surface. Higher quality surface finishes are available but not standard on low cost prototyping tooling. Payment terms 50% due on date of manufacture of proof part. Net 10 days for remaining balance. All parts designed to prove out mold accuracy and function will be constructed of fiberglass for cost efficiency.
Prices subject to change. We reserve the right to decline any job we deem as un-manufacturable.
