I am trying to make a mold for some parts and the material is commercially pure lead. I was wondering if anyone can help me with a few questions.
- What is the shrinkage factor for commercially pure lead?
- When scaling the part in SolidWorks can you do it by percentage (make 1% bigger)?
- Would it be best to just pour the lead in the top and just shave the overflow off after (parts shown as red in pic 2)
- Can anyone think of anything else I need to consider to make this mold work.
I have attached the part files as well in case anyboby needed them!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
