Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to making jewelry myself so and info would be very helpful. I want to make
a mold I can use to cast resin in but I don't know what the best material I should get it printed in.
Is it your intention to make a mold that has no undercuts so that the resin will "pop" out? - If not you will have a problem. Even then I think the resin would resist coming out of the mold. I once made a silicone mold from a sandstone model and then used that to make the resin piece. Worked fine, as I suspect most materials here would.
When you say no undercuts do you mean inner hole in the object? If so then yes, one of the molds does have a inner circle hole in the top of it. My goal was to be able to skip making a silicone mold all together, but I didn't think of the undercut thing thx. I've been told alittle WD-40 does a good job helping release resin.
Well a hole would certainly be an extreme undercut, yes. Just keep in mind that you won't get a hard resin out of a hard mold unless there are no undercuts - with the exception being the destruction of the mold in the process.Glenn ------ My Website Third Dimension Jewellery
