3D Printed deep drawing die

Recently I had to make me a small serie of little steel springs (20 pcs; 0,4 mm x 13,2 mm). I asked myself: what is ‘rapid’ ? At least I got an idea rapidly: a metal printed deep drawing die. I turned it into a virtual model and asked LayerWise to print it.
This morning I had a moment test the result. With the help of a sturdy bench vice acting as the press I closed the mold, having a wire and some grease in between the front and rear parts of it. The result exceeded my expectations ! The resulted shape matched the spring I was looking for right away.
