I’m taking a forging & forming class right now. We started out by
making an acrylic (?) die to use w/annealed copper sheet and thick
pieces of urethane in a hydraulic press.
My design is probably a tad more intricate than I should have made
it, and the smaller and narrower details are not pressing as I’d
hoped they would. I tried softer neoprene, harder urethane, boosting
up the die with blocks of plastic beneath it, multiple annealings–
still no smaller details.
What might help to get these details to work?
