Unit 3 – Week 6
Week 6: model making, silicone, fast cast.
3 types Scale, prototypes, and replicas
Scale can refer to anything made to a different size whether its smaller or larger than the original. To make sure something is 90 degrees you can use the 3.4.5 rule. If you measure 3 one direction and 4 the other side. The distance between the end points should 5.

Model Making materials and methods by David Neat
Silicon: Very sticky and splatters everywhere. Requires 5% by weight catalyst. You need to spray most things with a release agent because it will seep into small pores and get stuck. It picks up every little detail. Even more exact than latex. It is more expensive though.
