Self manufacture 2.0

The first complete set of characters was complete. The collectible RFID characters had no problems other than previously stated. During the console arms however another problem arose – Due to the quantity of material needed to fill the mould the heat produced during the reaction of the elastomer caused the main body to shrink – because of this when the arms were added they were too big by around 3mm.

To combat this shrinkage a number of things could be done:
– Reduce the material with a insert mould,
– Use a lower shore plastic (less heat is produced during the reaction)
– Add small quantities of material at a time.
