Explore the basic categories of mold types, including single-part pour-over, two-part, three- or more multipart molds, multi-use, and destructive molding, or single use.
- [Instructor] Let's talk about different mold types.…The first difference is between destructive…and multi-use, but before we get started,…I wanted to call out this display pane.…I use this quite a lot when working with assemblies,…so that I can easily hide, show,…and make parts transparent, so I can see what I'm doing.…You can find the display pane by clicking…this little arrow, and you'll have toggle buttons…for all of the parts in your assembly.…In this first example, I've created a sculptural object…that has a lot of cut-throughs, so it'd be difficult…to separate into reusable mold parts.…
This calls for destructive molding.…Destructive molding is just what it sounds like.…You have to crumble, break, or destroy the mold…in order to get the cast out.…One of the most common types of destructive molding…is sand casting, where specialized sand…is packed around patterns of the master shape…that you're going to be molding.…The master shape is melted out,…and then the void is filled with molten metal.…Once the metal is cooled, the sand is broken up…
