Spider Mold (cerby's crawlers 04) by cerberus333 Dec 6, 2012

Description

Ok I loved the original creepy crawlers toy
as a kid.
Spider was always a favorite.
Now with the magic of 3d printing and oogoo
I get to make creepy rubber spiders with my son!

 That's freaking awesome feedback!
PLA is becoming my only option
a cold garage and ABS are not a good combination!
i guess the wax paper is not the best idea,
i am looking over the old creepy crawler molds
and will be adding those and a few other ideas for molds.
really do appreciate that others are trying the oogoo
i think it's the best thing since 3d printing, makes it affordable
to make molds and then lost wax-metal, plaster, polyester resin (the fiberglass resin) and a slew of other casting
compounds a few steps from 3d printing!

Worked great with PLA.  I sprayed it with a little Pam cooking spray and it released fine.  It was harder to get it off the wax paper.

Instructions

Not printed as yet , will update when printed.

I print in ABS for the molds, I have not tested oogoo in PLA.
I used a 10% infill and the finer a slice the better.
Also i have found that acetone wash on the mold cavity
makes a smooth surface which looks great on the castings.

this is a open mold, pack and if desired use a wax paper to
make a smooth flat bottom on the casting

oogoo is silicone caulking (the cheap stuff that smells like vinegar)
mixed with cornstarch.
