I am currently trying to create a mold for my school project.
The model that I am trying to create is a 4 fold model with sprue.
A single product works just fine, but i am trying to create a mold for the 4 fold model with a sprue
Because it has a draft it is difficult to create separete coins and sprue into a mold.
Our assingment is to produce this mold., therefore i need this model.
the parting line function works fine. But when I am trying the parting surface function, SW does not allow me to create a surface big enough to draw a mold that is big enoegh for the tooling split function. when i enter 6 mm or more the surfaces have a strange shape which don't cover the complete product.
Therefore i have created a planer surface to replace the parting surface. This planer surface is also recognised in the function tooling split as parting surface. But stil when I click the green tick it shown "cannot knit sheets together".
the measurements of the final mold have to be 199.90 mm by 139.90 mm.
Does someone know a solution to this, it would realy help me!
thanks in advance
