Sherpa Design owner reworks an existing mold tool using NX [VIDEO]

One of the risks of reworking any type of mold — whether it’s vacuum or injection mold or wax injection — is the risk of scraping your original tool. Making sure you've got good information to start is paramount.

Pat Barrett from Sherpa Design and Applied CAx explains from our CMM and programming room a procedure we use to help rework mold tools.

On this particular project we were provided 4 of the same mold cavities and needed to rework them to put in some inserts and add additional features that weren't there before.
