Apply the chapter's concepts into a higher complexity mold to explore what design considerations look like applied to a real-world project.
- [Woman] As you can tell,…there are a lot of factors that go into mold design.…There are different types of molds, mold components,…mold box best practices, and pitfalls to watch out for.…I'm going to open this example part…so that we can look at these factors in context.…This dental case keeps in mind…all the concepts that we've reviewed so far.…This case can be molded in a simple, bi-valve mold.…As you can see, if we do a draft analysis of the case,…we'll be able to see that draft has been applied…to all sides that are perpendicular…to the direction of pull.…
Green is good, red is bad, and yellow is adjustable.…I can adjust the degree of draft it's looking for here,…to make sure my model has been drafted correctly.…It looks like there isn't enough draft on my rib features.…I can adjust this by going back into the feature tree…and adjust the draft in the feature itself.…If that's difficult to do,…there's also a feature in mold tools…to add draft after the fact.…(mouse clicks softly)…Now that I'm happy with the draft analysis,…
