You will have to excuse my ignorance in discussing this as I am working my way through and may not use the correct terminology. In a nutshell the size of the product produced is:31.5″ long 8″ wide 3/4″thick I am looking to produce skateboards / skim boards made of recycled plastic as part of a program to clean up the oceans. The top would have a rough textural pattern with logo imprint, the bottom would be no pattern smooth.
I have been unsuccessful finding an affordable solution. Looking for help.
I don’t know what you mean, but you can make it yourself, I’ve even seen people who make a board of the thickness you’re looking for, integrating some texture into the mold; once cold you simply draw the way you are looking for and cut with router or cnc.
Hey, thanks for sharing the project, yeah my mold is available on my website linked in the post above. In the past I have been pressing the boards. We have started using the V4 Extruder to fill the mold which is producing much better results (See pic below) I have been pre heating the mold in an oven but plan to embed cartridge heaters inside the aluminum parts of the mold itself. There is a mailing list on my website also if you want to receive updates about the development 🙂
I will also stat a thread on the forum when we make some more progress.
