RepRaps by the ton III

As all you avid RRblog followers know, one of the things we've been doing is looking into using soft moulding to allow us to make RepRap components from the rapid-prototyped masters to sell in the RepRap online shop as a stopgap until there are enough RepRap machines out there to be making stuff directly.

I have now put complete instructions on how to do this on the wiki here.

Nice tutorial! Wish I'd had something like this when I tried mold making.
Do long vertical parts in the mould really bend? After you filled in the resin, which has the same density, things should straighten out again very well, in "zero-gravity :-)".
Of course you can´t do without the metal cores, as you won´t be able to remove the thing you just cast. ;-)
nice, i have used techniques like this for making wargaming miniatures and such and such, it works great and resin should be strong enough.
