Moulding Process of DYOR

In this method, students are exposed to various plastics resins and mould building materials (CNC built aluminium mould provided or their own silicon mould). The students move forward to the mould design and fabrication stage. It captures and maintain student interest within fun and creative team design environments. CAD and CAM generated master pieces and their negatives (mould).
Some experiments were carried out using different materials and mould and mould designs. Silicon mould and Aluminium mould were the main ones and the designs were simplified to avoid complications. Moulding material used were Acrylic resin and Epoxy resin. Later the experiments were also carried out using Acrylic resin with glass fibre to enhance strength to the pieces.
