Anyone else been thinking or actually doing molds for a home plastic injection molding ? Making signs and such is interesting. In looking to make molds for thermoforming shells I bumped into this : Home Plastic Injection Molding (which also got me to some free software posted earlier today in the resources). How about using the C-Beam plate maker to make molds for home made plastic injections. Apparently, one can use other plastics than the HDPE discussed earlier. Make your own poker chips ? How about coasters ? Special plastic inlays maybe ? Injection mold those endcaps and track tensioners ? Possibilities are endless and, for at least some items much quicker (and solid) than 3D printing. Each tool has its place / purpose ... This hobby is simply getting better and better as I move up the learning curve. I just can't wait for retirement and I will have to take over the garage ... or start looking for a house with lots more garage space. Wait... if people can live in tiny houses, I might be able to squeeze a few more machines inside 'my" tiny garage ! There might just not be room for the wife's car... maybe she should look at getting smaller car, just in case, eh ?
