Hello /diy/, first time here. I have been creating some 3d printed add on kits for transformers and I would like to make these 3d printed parts into actual plastic pieces. I'd like to use some sort of mold. The video below inspired me to do this. I'm mainly looking for any sort of tips, tricks, and advice from the board. Thanks a ton!

Yeah the normal process would be to use a Vacuum Chamber and/or Pressure pot.

You can't really produce professional quality stuff without removing bubbles. If you're hand finishing and painting parts then maybe you can get away with it.

If need be you can Ghetto together a Vacuum chamber from a Stainless Steel cooking pot, a Length of thick Polycarbonate sheet and a Refrigerator compressor.

Although if you're producing your own parts you can almost certainly recoup any costs through selling stuff anyway - as long as you aren't making anything too weird or niche, although maybe then it's Art, who knows?
