Injection Moulding Project: Asterisk

Year 2 Uni. injection moulding project: The brief was to design and create a small injection moulding promotional 'widget' for a company, which could be given away to promote the brand.

The project started with developing our concept, to making injection moulding blocks & inserts (by both hand & CNC), which would then be injected with HDPE, or Polypropylene to create a functional prototype.
