i am a new user with little or no experience.
Have you got any files or images to upload of an attempt? Or any sketches of what you are trying to achieve?
Have you tried the tutorials or online videos? There are a lot of resources out there for designing mould tools. I would try these then try the techniques with your application, then come back with your attempt.
Most likely vertical mould machine. I've done quite a few automotive TPE/santoprene tools that run on verticals due to manual unloading.
Anyway a quick google search for video and this was the first to come up. Look at 40 secs it shows you the basics of the idea. Obviously the quality of the tool and exact method is up to you but this is a starter.
