3d Printed Punch and Die Set for 2mm and 4mm spheres

3d Printed punch and die set for 2mm and 4mm spheres for compressible powder. Designed by me. The punches and dies slide inside a hole that was drilled just slightly oversize in a 2″ steel rod. Unfortunately, the die was way overloaded and the dies bent.  I think it would have worked if we incrementally  loaded it. 3d printed in stainless steel. I think this would be a good starting off point for other dies and punches for different shapes.
