I’m looking for someone who can 3D print a mold for me.
I’m going to build a carbon enclosure for my Loaded Vanguard but I’m having some trouble making a mold. I made one out of mdf wood, but its really hard to get the concave shape of the vanguard. Maybe a 3D printed mold is easier to produce.
Unfortunately I don’t own a 3D printer.
You could try using a different material for your plug. I want to try to use some craft foam so it is easier to shape. You could put some grip tape on the bottom of the deck and gently rub the foam on it to get the concave. Then remove the grip tape and finishing shaping the plug. After it is shaped and hotglued to the deck (along with a barrier over the deck itself) seal it with layers of surfacing epoxy to give it a gloss finish and reinforce the foam enough to handle the strains of vaccum bagging to make the mold.
Well, that’s what I’m going to try at least when all my stuff comes in from Composite Envisions next week. I’ll let you know how it goes!
