Cost of Product to Make
Post by Herb Diehr » Fri Nov 08, 2013 6:32 am

Hmmmmm...

Not sure where this belongs, so I'll leave it to the Wardens to straighten me out!

I have a pretty simple question; How much should the material cost to make a resin object? Not the mold itself, but the product only.

I'm looking for a total of one pound (as an example) with no modifications or added items from a bunch of things, totaling a pound weight after completion.

Anyone have any idea?


Thanks!

well smooth cast is about 110$ per 15lbs, so assuming no casting mistakes 11-15$ depending on how big you're gates and flow chamber are.
