This is a open pour mold for a Reaper soft plastic fishing lure. The reaper is a leech type bait that has been around since the 1960's. This one was modeled after some old ones I have had since the early 90's.
I printed this mold in PLA+ and try to pour my Plastisol at or around 300°. (I use Dead On Plastix's brand of Plastisol)
Video of this mold's design and use can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMhwsqaO9sU
I do not know the longevity of a printed mold. Your results may vary depending on brand/type of filament used.
I uploaded 3 different sized molds that should fit a variety of printer beds sizes. The baits are all the same the molds just have either 1,3, or 5 cavities for pouring.
4/16/20 - Per request I added master mold for the 5 cavity for creating molds from silicone. (I have net tested this so if there are problems let me know.)
If there are any problems with the STL's or you have questions please let me know.
I print this mold in PLA+ with the following settings
(You'll have to experiment with what works best for you.)
Layer Height = .10mm
Top Solid Layers = 15
Bottom Solid Layers = 3
Outline/Perimeter Shells = 4
Supports = Not Needed
Infill = 25%
