"Molding & Casting"
This week our assignment was "Molding and Casting," to design a 3D mold, machine it, and cast parts in it. To accomplish this we received training on using Machinable Wax, Silicone, DryStone, and HydroStone.
Due to certain constraints I wanted to make sure I got the "process" understood and completed. I decided to do a stamp. I designed several stamps but when it came to the tool paths they were not going to come out as detailed as I wanted.
This also happened with my mehndhi sketch. So I decided to designed a simplified version so that the tool paths would give me a level of detail that was acceptable with the end mill (drill bit) I had.
