KiwiMill model makers recently designed a car model to be used for a sales display. The models will be used to showcase automotive paints for Hyundai. We chose to cast these from a carved resin master made from our original computer drawings.
A generic car body was created in Rhino 3D by one of our designers.
A CNC milled resin master was created from this drawing.
A negative mold of the core was made from the master.
This core was inserted in the mold to create a hollow space in the cars when cast.
Three molds were made to cast the cars.
The molds were put in a pressure pot for a smooth cast.
130 castings were created.
The bottoms of the casts were sanded smooth.
The resulting cars will be painted various colors by our client, but here is one we painted.
