Senior Projects

Being a senior I’m involved in a lot of group projects. Integrated product development is what is taking most of my attention now. Today, I went with a group member to Smooth On. For the project we need to cast a 3d printed object. I had called a technician earlier in the week and they had suggested making a trip to the store front for hands on help.

It was well worth it. We were stepped through where to best make the pour spots and where to put seam lines. Our next step is actually setting up the molds, which I will upload pictures.

The technician was really helpful and got us set up with the materials we will need. We bought two starter tests of rubber to create the molds and two starter sets plastic to create the mold. As well we were set up with dye to color the plastic that is molded.
