    Eh, who would a thunk it? That's quite nice, wish that had been available a few years ago.

      Color me impressed. I would not have thought of using 3D printed parts for press brake tooling!

        This guy took it a step further. Exciting times we live in.

            Don't want to watch it because it' will make me buy one.

              Your words matter! I read your title and thought that your 3D printer died.

                  I saw this a while ago. Thought it has huge potential for small runs requiring custom tooling, but it would require the right person with the right skillset to really drive a program like that.

                    Are you using 100% infill?

                      Its not me but you can see when the one die busts that the infill is light, he is using multiple perimeters for the strength. You can see all the perimeters on the pieces if you look close.

                        I just assumed it was you. It wouldn't be hard to design a stronger inner core, perhaps using the simulation tools in Fusion 360 or Inventor.

                          Right up there with "eats, shoots, and leaves.".....

                            Did he mention what kind of printer he used? The first press brake parts looked like they were made using filament but the next vid looked like the frming dies were solid as if done in a resin machine (forgot the nomenclature) .

                            Nicely done !

                            on edit .............I see that there are two different authors there but , still ??

                              I think the second guy has a form labs printer (resin SLA). I think he mentioned that in either that video or, another one of his videos (can't remember). Pretty new channel, but he's come out of the gate strong, and has some interesting content.
