Molding

Description:

Molding is an operation that allows the creation of a mold to reproduce small series from a modelling proof or an object (organic or not). Thanks to this course, you will have the knowledge to understand the construction and create molds for cake, butter, soap or chocolate. The making of a mold, the drawing materials and the logic of mold building will no longer hold any secrets for you!

Planning:

• Materials / supplier and glossary
• Molding processes – molding operations
• The finishing processes
• Hygiene and safety
• Laws on the reproduction of objects and their protection



Infrastructure:

Water – Dishes / Equipped kitchen – Toilets – Parking places with disc for max 1h along the road of the pavement & max 3h at the Sauvabelin Lake (5min on foot). Collective parking of the signal at 15min walking distance (disc & paying).

Description:

Do you wish to reproduce a part of the human body for a mass production or to obtain a model for wood carving? Or would you like to make a single or serial print of your modeling proof? This type of personalized project has its place in our project-based molding sessions, during which we accompany you in the concretization of your project. We provide you with tools, an adequate work space, as well as punctual coaching and follow-up in order to concretize the manufacture of your object.

Planning:

Accompaniment in the design of molds (“reasoning” the mold)
• Advice on materials for the print and the mold and execution techniques
• Setting up of personalized coaching to help with the production of the final piece.
• Group exchanges on current projects, techniques and local suppliers.
• Provision of tools
• Provision of an adapted space.

Note: Cost of raw material not included. Supply of raw material possible at a professional rate.

Training methodology:

Interactive teaching: Interactive teaching allows teaching by actively involving trainees in the learning processes through regular instructor/learner and learner/learner interactions. This method focuses on the understanding and meaning of the course content as opposed to merely memorizing them by rote. Learners are constantly encouraged to be active participants.

Experiential learning: Experiential learning is a learning approach through experience, which directly places learners in situations that reflect reality. This approach is based on the learning process rather than on the results (concrete experimentation, reflective observation). The instructor adapts to the learner’s level. The learner will make the group progress by being actively involved in the training and by sharing experiences. This training approach aims to promote the development of learners’ autonomy.

Project-based training: The learner produces his own work project at his own pace, independently. The instructor is present to accompany the learner when he/she encounters difficulties and provides support, advice or suggestions for experimentation to move forward in the project. The goal is to equip the learner with methods, techniques and knowledge so that he/she can accurately analyze and evaluate the production process of his/her project and solve problems with flexibility.
