Nickel shims are primarily electroformed to have multiple copies of a structure from a master template and are widely used in prototyping and industrial production. Shims are produced as either thick or fexible molds, and are manufactured by electroforming, a specific electrodeposition process. A common field of use is as inserts for injection molding, or as sleeves for roll-to-roll processes. The micro and nanofabrication of a new original structure can be time-consuming and costly. The goal is to securely transfer structures into nickel shims to guarantee a multitude of usages over time and high-quality molding and replication. The generations and shim family branches are created to sustainably preserve the structure and use it for industrial replication.
