3D printed mold for custom flower pot.
PRODUCT MOLDING PROCESS
1 - Mold printing:
2 - Clean the printout, cut off the residuals during printing, errors arising during printing, then use clamps to fix the mold.
3 - Use cooking oil or Vaseline oil applied to the inner walls of the mold to help remove the mold easily when the cement dries. For models with a connecting element to create space inside the pot, use foil to secure the core for easy removal later.
4 - Use a single-sided adhesive decal, stick it back on the molding table to help keep the parts sealed below, preventing the core from emerging when pouring cement.
5 - mix the cement and pour it into the mold, to prevent foam from occurring in the cement, you can add more water, then let the cement settle, remove the top water and use the remaining cement.
6 - After 6 hours (with normal cement, quick-drying cements need to refer to the specific drying time) need to remove the core before the cement is completely dry, it will make it difficult to remove the mold, the outer faces may Let dry completely with complex print.
7 - Let the sample pot dry completely, rinse the pot and you can paint as you like.
8 - Wash the mold and dry it for next use.
