SMART MATERIALS - POLYMORPH

USING A MOULD

V. Ryan © 2006 - 2008

 

A mould can be made by hand by a skilled craftsperson. However, a piece of CAD software such as pro/DESKTOP® can be used to design a mould and a CNC machine can then be used to cut / mill the shape.

However, polymorph is a material suited to fast prototyping rather than the lengthy use of CAD software and CNC machines. Polymorph is useful because it can be shaped by hand very easily. The advantage of using CAD / CAM is that a more accurate prototype can be made.
