In this project im developing multiple mechanism that you can make your self. I moved the files for this project to YouMagine.com because the terms of service of Makerbot/Thingiverse scares me a bit off.
Wake up!

it is needed to build up the mechanism in 2 times and therefor 2 molds because of multiple reasons.
It's essential for constructing of the air chambers because you can't take these out later if you mold it in one time.
and because solid silicone layer is slightly different because of the more thickener what makes this layer less flexible and there it will always bend towards this side.

Check on documentation and the description in there, I hope it explain it all

this is inflatable? why 2 parts? I can't tell by the pic...looks neat though :)

the .stls are probably printable molds..

quite genius!

Thanks, yes they are!
