This paper describes an algorithm for automated design of index-plate type of multi-shot molds for manufacturing multi-material objects. This new algorithm is a significant improvement over previous mold design algorithms and it accounts for constraints associated with the index-plate molding process. Our algorithm works in the following manner. First, based on the index-plate process constraints, we determine whether the given multi-material object is moldable by indexplate process by… CONTINUE READING
