Prototype molds can help you plan the placement of necessary marks of manufacture, such as injection site, and pins.
- [Narrator] With the advances of…material science and manufacturing,…we've been able to create large volumes…out of a minimum amount of material.…This is primarily for costs,…but includes other considerations like weight…and temperature resistance.…A typical injection-molded design…is called a clamshell,…where there are two parts that meet along a shared plane…enclosing the mechanics within an easily handled volume.…They are so called clamshell…because they are volumetric and thin walled.…In order to make parts…that are the same thickness throughout,…assembled together, and hold the motor within,…certain structures are necessary to the B side of the part.…
Structures like:…ribs and bosses.…Let's look at this stool.…This is a step stool that needs to hold up…the weight of a person,…defeating their height challenge.…It needs to hold up under that weight…and so if we look underneath…we can see some of those necessary structures.…These ribs aren't here for looks.…They're there to create structural strength.…At the intersection of the ribs,…
