My Question is about creating a 3D printable negative mold for an irregular concave mesh/object which has an outer convex and inner matching concave surface with irregular outline/edge.
I have made a mesh surface solidified (using knife tool, boolean modifiers, solidify) which will cover a curved defect on a model (like a lid).
I want a mold (negative)for this object which is
- 2 part and separable
- Which can be 3D printed
I read multiple tutorials on creating a 2-part mold for objects most of those objects are convex on both sides. They work like charm for something object like "()" but not for something that is like "((".
I am having troubles to have matching concave surface in one mold and convex surface in another mold and both when put together we will have a space between then matching the object attached.
These molds need to be 3D printable.
I will attach the blend file and the outline of the png (drawing of how I want the mold to be).
Blender file for the object:(for which I want to make a mold) https://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/b/5572/
The outline image file for the mold: (The red and blue are two parts of the mold and the while space is an empty space matching perfectly the object above) https://ibb.co/yp5LjGJ
