Abstract: The aim of this work has been to adapt and apply the advantages of rapid prototyping and electroforming technologies to try to achieve an innovative mould design for rotational moulding. The new innovative design integrates an electroformed shell, manufactured starting from a rapid prototyping mandrel, with different designed standard aluminium tools. The shell holder enables mould assembly with high precision manufacture of a shell in a few minutes. The overall mould cost is significantly decreased because it is only necessary to manufacture one or two shells each time; however, the rest of the elements of the mould are standard and usable for an infinite number of shells, depending on size.
