Defiance Games talks about their new test models.
From their preview:
The first test shots went off yesterday afternoon and the toolmaker was very happy with the result. The whole mold filled – including the four bases at either end. We did get some flashing on several parts – which is the result of too much pressure being applied.
They are now checking the problem areas and widening the gates to those parts so that the plastic can flow more smoothly with less pressure. It is better to start off with smaller gates and widen them than to have large once that need to be welded smaller. (Please note this is shot with basic high impact polystyrene – it’s not colorized and is translucent – NOT the final plastic) More updates once they do the next shots.
