In recent years, Rapid Tooling (RT) and Additive Manufacturing (AM) have been implemented in many aspects of the industry, especially in the area of new product development. The demands for short time delivery of low-cost products with various geometrical shapes show an increasing trend from year to year. With the increasing number of plastic and rubber products manufacturers as well as engineering, product fabricators, the need for low cost materials and cheap tooling, including RT has also increased. Manufacturers are sorting for new and cheap materials, both for the components as well the manufacturing techniques. The advancement of AM and RT technologies had shown drastic improvement in the technologies and the materials being processed. The replacement of pure material to metal epoxy composite with the addition of filler particle because of global demand for economical, lightweight, high performance, and wear and corrosion resistant materials. However, the tooling materials for fabrication of mold and die using RT techniques are still limited, especially on metal epoxy composite material.
