RTV Rubber Mold/Resin Casting shrinkage (was Re: 3D Printed ATSF Tank Cars)
Thanks, Tom. Very interesting. I've seen "consumer" sized packaging of the rubber and resin for modelers but I don't recall specifications. Maybe inside the package, huh? May I assume that the specific rubber (Silicone Inc.'s GI-1000) mentioned must be purchased in "industrial" quantities?toggle quoted message Show quoted text
In my situation I can "dial in" the desired room temperature and humidity. That came about merely because I didn't want wood bench work to expand and contract with changes in humidity, not that such changes are extreme in this area anyway.
Right now it appears that in my situation trial and error will likely get me to my goal sooner than anything else. I had no idea resin could get so hot in the curing process. One could get burned.
