Wilson Tool’s Bend3DTM line of AM bending tools reportedly match the quality of traditional steel press-brake tools used to bend sheetmetal. They also work well as forming and air-bending tools, and mark-free bending implements. Its Solv3DTM line of AM support parts can replace end-use parts traditionally manufactured out of steel or plastic. They can replace items in a shop that often require creation of an expensive mold, replace jigs or fixtures, and be used as prototypes.
