Title: Injection mold pictures
Post by: rbogle on October 08, 2016, 03:18:33 PM
Pics from dianamp@comcast.net on Clayart

injection mold that made the template (The Tech department made it--very cool.)

Dear Clayart:

These two images are related to the video "Big Pots"
that I posted on Clayart a week or so ago. Link to video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ472L8l4oU

The silvery metal one is a photo of the injection mold
making machine that creates the plastic trapezoidal
dies for cutting the clay pieces to make "Big Pots".

The white plastic trapezoid photo is a close up view of the
template. 

I just wanted to show you what went into making the
template--lots of work (and experience) by the EMU
Technology department.  Thanks!

Diana

  'Twould be easier to understand if a standard mechanical drawing of the thing could be had,
does anybody do that any more?
  From what I see here it appears to be a die to make a slant sided brick from which slices can be cut to make the templates for her big pot method. Is this correct?
