ProtoMold Design Check

From Interactive Device Design Fall13

Instead of a reading response, you'll get familiar with injection molding requirements by uploading the files you designed for your solid modeling homework to an online injection molding company and getting a quote. You will do this in the teams you formed for HW 4.

  • Go to protomold.com
  • Check out the resource tab/drop down to learn the basic design requirements of injection molding.
  • Click on "Get a ProtoQuote" and upload the files your team created for your enclosure - the parts that would actually be injection molded (not the batteries etc). Request a quote.
  • Using our response form, describe what kind of problems -- if any -- the design check found for your enclosure, and how you would change your design to address them.

Quotes may take a day or two to come back. You have until Friday to submit this response assignment.
