How to make a mold for a pendant in 43 seconds.!!


Well, 20-30 min is a little more realistic.... ;)

Below is an animation created with the CAD program Fusion360, mostly for fun.

Below are a couple of detailed and richly illustrated descriptions of how to cast a ring and a heel ring with the MSC method, which you can check out and download if you want!

MSC 2.0 Casting Bottles and Accessories

(expected to arrive around the turn of the month October-November 2021)

(international patent pending)

Description of the parts.

1. a-d. The wider casting bottle. Forms a 4-part bottle with a diameter of 9 cm (without the segment divider) and a height of 7.2 cm. Here mounted with 4 cylinder segments (a), segment divider (b), strap (c) and 3 hose clamps (d). Segment 1 is shown below. A male lid can easily be placed exactly right onto the casting bottle.

2. Two lids, male (a) and female (b, see below), 9 cm in diameter and height 2.8 cm (both male and female lids). Assembled with a narrow strap. Can be combined optionally with the MSC bottles. Has no seam, which assembles the lids or the tap with a divisible casting bottle. This makes it much easier when the lid is to be pulled straight up. Of course, this strap can also be used to clamp together two 4-part bottles or other combinations you want to use. The lid pairs can also be used separately as 'traditional' 2-layer casting.

 

3.The narrower, long casting bottle. Forms a 4-part casting bottle with a diameter of 6 cm and a height of 7.2 cm. Mounted as the wider bottle (1).

 

4. The narrower, shorter casting bottle. Forms a 4-part casting bottle with a diameter of 6 cm and a height of 3.5 cm. Mounted as the wider bottle (1), but with only a hose clamp around the strap


5. Two lids, male and female (see (2)) 6 cm in diameter and height 2.8 cm (both male and female lids). Assembled with a narrow strap. Can be combined optionally with the MSC bottles. Has no seam, which assembles the lids or the tap with a divisible casting bottle. The lid pairs can of course also be used separately as 'traditional' 2-layer casting.

 

6. Holder for 2 or 3 sand segments. Good tool when you need to hold sand segments together, which is difficult with just your hands. Available for both 6 cm and 9 cm bottles.

 

7. Multi-joint stand with a neodymium magnet in the foot that allows arbitrary placement of the stand on the base plate. Very useful, partly for a stable placement of the model, partly to orient the model in the best way. For a given orientation of the model, you see which parts end up between two segment layers (look straight from the top) and if there is any undercut in the segments (look from the side in each quadrant on the base plate). The barbed wire can easily be replaced with a crocodile clamp if desired. The stand can of course be combined with a magnetic cone. The barbed wire / crocodile clamp is easily removed from the model when it is stable between the segments.

8. Stand plate in steel, 14 cm in diameter. Serves as a guide of the segments towards the middle when they are pressed together around the model. Marked with concentric circles, lines for the segments and segment numbers.

 

9. Cone, magnetic at the bottom and provided with a small tip at the top. Works partly as a stand for the model, which is pressed onto the tip (you may need to strengthen the bracket with a little modeling) and partly as a 'model' for a casting, especially important to have when casting in plaster. Can be placed anywhere on the tripod plate, as it is magnetic. Strong magnet of neodymium, which makes it sit securely on the plate during compression of the segments.

 

10. About 50 cm magnetic tape. Good when casting in plaster, to cover the groove on the inside of the lid so that the plaster does not stick. The groove is needed to hold the sand during casting.

 

11. Special screwdriver for the hose clamps. Probably the most used tool in the manufacture of the mold.

 

12. Strong neodymium magnet. Works well as a handle when pulling out, especially the first segment from the model. It is difficult to get a grip on the segment with your hands and a pull-out in the right direction is the most critical step in MSC casting.

 

13. 0.5 mm thick pipes, 15 cm long and diameters 17 mm, 19 mm and 21 mm. Good tool for 'punching’ a depression in the sand when casting rings

 

14. Thin steel plate 10 x 1 cm. Good tool to use if you want to place the magnetic cone (9) 'upside down' in any place, e.g. in the lid when casting plaster. See picture below.

15. Thin plates for casting e.g. rings. It is necessary to place a plate under the model if it is hollow (like a ring) so as not to destroy the segments when they are removed from the model. The diameters of the plates are 18, 20 and 22 mm.
