I am considering producing dinosaur model kits together with a ZBrush expert. I have no experience with 3D printing at all. My first thought was that 3D printing could be used to print a model dinosaur, and then silicone moulds would be produced from that in the usual way: you first have to cover up one side of your physical model with clay. The result is half of a dinosaur sticking out of a clay background. Let's call this the 'mother mould'. Normally you pour silicone rubber over it to produce one half of the 'real mould'. After the rubber has set, you turn it over, remove the clay, and in essence you now have a new 'mother mould' for the other side. Pour rubber over it to get the new 'real mould'. The two halves of the 'real mould' can be used to produce models. I hope this is clear without illustrations... I thought that part of the process could be skipped. I propose to model the two 'mother moulds' directly in ZBrush, and then to get them printed in 3D. With that it would be very easy to produce 'real moulds' (and if these ever wear out, new ones could be made). Would this work? Is 3D printing accurate enough for the resulting mother moulds to fit together precisely enough?
