I have a mold and I want to make a sample from that this mold should make. How to do this?
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Pablo.
Offset the inner surface of the mold area by 0 distance. Then you can knit all the surfaces. Modify as required.
Extrude a block without merging into the mold. Then subtract the bodies to get the inside part. Modify as required.
Please use "advanced editor" in case you want to attach any files.

Nice. Thanks for the answer. The "problem" is that the mold is for a skateboard deck, check the image
So, why is that a problem? It seems like Deepak's suggested methods should work for your skateboard deck as well as for any other shape.(I hate to see Deepak miss out on any well-deserved points!)
Sorry, your question is not very clear.
Are you trying to design a mold for a sample part?
If you are looking for help on how to design the mold, there are helpful discussions here
I'm not using reverse engineer. We have made the mold, and now I want to make a sample part
Use the mold and make the part...........
Yyou could apply a mold release to the two mold parts and use an epoxy or silicon to fill the cavity and have a part that way.......but if you dont get a clean release of the epoxy you will end up with mold parts that need to be cleaned or worse stuck together, silicon will be soft, but easy to get out of the mold
Sorry, I mean... I want to make a 3D part sample =P
Insert a "block" in to the mold assembly. The block needs to be larger than the finished skateboard. While in the assembly, click on the newly inserted block and "edit part", then use the cavity function, selecting the mold components as your cut tools.
