United Sciences’ technology allows for custom-made silicone headphones, makes its molds simultaneously on four MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printers. That cuts down mold production time to 20 minutes, plus another 30 minutes to assemble. That’s compared with the four hours it now takes using an industrial 3D printer.
