Tony Holtz lays out basic design "rules" for successfully designing plastic injection-molded parts. As with many of life's rules, some of these can be bent if absolutely necessary. But bending rules has costs and consequences, and this radio show addresses ways to work with the process and within its guidelines to make the most of injection molding's flexibility and enormous potential. The radio show touches on issues of Design, Tools, Material Selection, and Moldability.
