Making a Mould for composite production

eg: stopmotion, new-york, street
This video shows a basic tutorial on how to produce a fiberglass mould for production parts from a plug. The plug acts as the master shape to make the mould. Each lift of the mould deteriotes the moulds. They have to be maintained. However a decent mould can easily give many 100's of lifts. Moulds and plugs can cost 100's of thousands of dollars on a full aircraft to produce. Generally manufacturers go through multiple iterations before getting the right plugs and moulds
