FINAL MODEL – MR SHARK
Mr shark is a improvement of model 3.
- Decrease overall size of model
- Flat base made in consideration of mould/ice tray making
- Button and hole carefully measured and made so modules could be slotted together perfectly
MOLD MAKING PROCESS
Sanding and polishing the initial model is very important. My initial model wasn’t very smooth and that affected all the models made with the latex mould… I had to polished and touch up on them before they could be used for the silicon mould.
