Slow molding – Clipboard

25/02/2016 at 00:57

A fun and simple product made from the sheet material is a clipboard.

Just make the sheet the right size and attach the clip.
I tried to riveting it. And that worked!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy 😀

Hey Pim!,

Was wondering what kind of mold you used to make these flat sheets?

And, how do they hold up to machining? I noticed the edges were substantially cleaner on your finished product,looks like it was a clean cut– did you experience any warping of the material?

How long did the compression/cooling process take?

Thanks so much!

Greetings from Berlin,

Charleen

Dan3008 why not use the basic design and use a benchtop oven instead. downscaling wil be heaps cheaper. you will just loose out on build volume.

I made a mold from flat bars and a sheet of steel.

Check the slow molding post for more info:

@pimvb,

could you please share some info about the clips.. like a link or a name you use when searching.. cause there are tons of various types of clips and I couldn’t find the right ones.

@jegor-m

I just bought some old ones at the second hand shop. I think every clip could work as long as you can riveting them…?
