Week 6 - Molding and casting
Download SolidWorks STL positive file (pressure plate)
I molded and casted a pressure-plate for this week's assignment.
I initially milled the wax in wrong orientation, which resulted in this shape.
First of all, the axes were not showing correctly when I exported the STL file in modela.
So I changed the orientation.
But the orientation I chose was incorrect.
I corrected it in my final attempt.
Also, if I looked at "Preview cutting" carefully, I would not have made that mistake.
Secondly, I had some problem in aligning the origins.
FInally, I figured out that the co-ordinates of "Move" should match the co-ordinate of the model using the snap button.
