4 up brickman gets MOULDED by celticfable Oct 3, 2012

Description

We took the Mini-Fig and after slight adjustment made a development injection mould tool for the parts...mark II mould is underway with coring out to reduce sinkage!?

see the amended files - hopefully you'll now have core & cavity sets!
hi there - just noticed I managed to upload a pre-prod of the cre/cavity missing some key features... revision on it's way.

We use our own bespoke combi-tools - essentially the only piece we ever have to make are the core/cavity plates - ejection, bolster etc is common...

See the revised files for info

Apologies for mis-loading the file!!

I had a look at the STEP file and imported it to look at a number of things..

E.g. sprue, gate, runner length, alignment pins, eject pins etc.

My model import shows none of this stuff.
Is my model import poor or is it not in the model files?

Cheers

Edit
Sorry the picture did not go in the post...

If you have access to a development mould machine this will give you LOTS of mini-figs...

Amended to included more mould tool info (4th October 12)

Note this data is for the core and cavity inserts - see the photograph of the actual tool - you need a mould base to use this in a typical development machine - though this might work fine for say vac cast or pour moulding??
