My landlady has her own studio and kiln for creating glass objects such as bowls, vases, sculptures etc. I thought it would be interesting to try and use a 3D printed mould to create a clay mould to slump glass onto. I came up with the following simple design to try out (created and rendered in blender):
Unfortunately it was printed in PLA, so acetone would not work.
I have just created the clay moulds. The roughness wasn't an issue since the cling film I used to stop the clay and plastic sticking also smoothed over the surface. If there were any rough parts then I just smoothed them by hand.
