Wavewalk S4 pattern pretty much done
This morning the mold makers sent us a batch of new photos. This time it’s the top part of the S4 wooden pattern.
Some of the areas that have fine details in them were done with a plastic material, in order to achieve the highest precision.
As seen here, this wooden pattern is almost ready to serve as a mold for making the S4 in fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP), such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, Kevlar, etc. But in order to produce a cast aluminum rotational mold for the actual product, the mold-makers first need to use this wooden pattern to produce a set of two second generation molds called ‘sand mold’.
