Conformal cooling channels in injection molds have been built by additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, developmentally since the late 1990s using successive thin layers of metal. Unlike conventional straight drilled cooling lines, conformal cooling channels curve around deep shapes in a mold, equidistant from the mold surface, which is the source of heat. They can only be built by additive manufacturing and are designed with cooling line requirements secondary only to part and parting line requirements, unlike traditional drilled cooling lines which are located where space is available late in the design process.
