Tam demonstrates and defines core concepts and terminology of molding and casting, with an introductory explanation of processes.
- There are some core term definitions…that are important to understanding…the rest of the subject matter at hand.…The first of which is the definition of…molds, mold making, casts, casting, and cycle.…Understanding these specifics now…will help inform your absorption of prototyping methods,…which in turn inform manufacturing technique.…Let's get started.…A mold is a three-dimensional negative of your part,…sometimes called a die or cavity.…The goal of a successful mold…is to capture all geometric features of your original part.…A mold can be made from many different types of materials,…depending on the desired end-needs of your components.…
Mold making is the creation of a mold or negative…from your original or master part,…capturing dimensional and textural detail…for the use of creating reproductions…that are identical in form to your original.…Mold making takes the majority of your work time…for procedural planning after the design of the part.…It includes many factors…that will affect your production process…
