Compression machine – Amount of plastic

03/05/2018 at 22:21

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?


Thanks! 😀

Hi there,

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.

Thanks jegor-m,

I will consider the process that you explain to create new objects. 😀
