Carbon Fiber Cup Holder – Molds Finished

Well the molds for the carbon fiber cup holders we designed are all finished, and I have to say they’re some of the nicest molds I’ve made.  They just came out super clean, and should make very nice parts.  It’s a two part mold – the top piece that forms the front face and bottom return will be removable, so that the part can be de-molded without destroying the mold.  We tweaked the design a little from the incarnation that was shown on the original post so that the surface that the cup sits on is sunken down a bit from the surrounding area.  These will be made of clear coated carbon fiber, which is always exciting.  We’re planning on getting these laid up early this coming week, and then final trimmed and off to the paint shop for clear coating by the end of week.
