Compression machine – Amount of plastic
Hi guys, I would like to know how you calculate the exact amount of plastic to create a new object with the compression machine? It’s an empirical process or you have a method for this?
I usually do it by weight. You know the average density of the plastic type you use. For items that are more complex than a regular plate I tend to make a 3d model and get its weight from the program. Then add something like 10% and see how it turns out. If it is not enough, you need to analyze the reasons for it and then add a bit more.
