Firstly, let me state that while i have worked in jewelry for 5
years, i know little to nothing about CAD/CAM, molds, casting and the
likes. I simply know about
However, i have been asked to assist a client in replicating some
small plastic and metal parts for cell phones and pda's. Thus far,
the advice that has been given to me has been to seek a metal mold
maker because of the thinness and precision required to make these
parts fit properly. Some parts are only 1mm thick.
The advice i seek is any and all that you are willing to provide. Is
silcone possible? Where can i get a metal mold make? Shrinkage?
I thank you all in advance,
