### On the Separation of a Polyhedron from Its Single-Part Mold [article]

2017 arXiv   pre-print
We study the case in which the mold is made of a single part and the object to be produced is a three-dimensional polyhedron.  ...  We give an algorithm that decides whether a given polyhedron with n facets is castable with a single-part mold, and if so indicates how to orient the polyhedron in the mold and a direction in which the  ...  Theorem 3 The polyhedron P is castable with a single-part mold if and only if the arrangement A(C) contains a point of depth 1.  ...

Summary: “A parting line for a polyhedron is a closed curve on its surface which identifies the two halves of the polyhedron for which mold-boxes must be made.  ...  A parting line is undercut-free if the two halves that it generates do not contain facets that obstruct the de-molding of the polyhedron.  ...

### Manufacturing processes [chapter]

Ravi Janardan, Tony Woo
2004 Handbook of Discrete and Computational Geometry, Second Edition
GLOSSARY Mold: A cavity in the shape of the part to be manufactured into which molten metal is poured. It consists of two mating parts called mold halves.  ...  A key step here is the design of the mold from a digital model of the part, since this affects both the speed of the process and the quality of the finished part.  ...  [Bra86]: A good general reference on a variety of design and manufacturing processes, including casting, molding, forging, stamping, machining, etc.  ...

### Sufficiently Fat Polyhedra are not 2-castable [article]

2002 arXiv   pre-print
We consider a generalization of the sand casting process where the object is manufactured by gluing together two identical faces of parts cast with a single piece mold.  ...  In this note we consider the problem of manufacturing a convex polyhedral object via casting.  ...  Let P be a polyhedron that lies in H, while one of its faces F lies on the boundary of H. The set M = H \ P is called a mold for P .  ...

This notion can be more extended for categorizing the boundary shapes of polyhedrons, but it has not been explored enough yet.  ...  We reexamine the three types of polyhedron monotonicity by relating them with 3D manufacturing problems, and present their formulation with geometric problems on the sphere. q  ...  We have defined the pockets and the lids of § by computing its deficiencies from the operations of §K Ã CHð §Þ.  ...

### Finding Mold-Piece Regions Using Computer Graphics Hardware [chapter]

Alok K. Priyadarshi, Satyandra K. Gupta
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science
An important step in the mold design process that ensures disassembly of mold pieces consists of identifying various regions on the part that will be formed by different mold pieces.  ...  By using a system that can quickly find various mold-piece regions on a part, designers can easily optimize the part and mold design and if needed make appropriate corrections upfront, streamlining the  ...  However, the opinions expressed here are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect that of the sponsor.  ...
