At the end of 2022, my colleague Artemio Villegas and I bought an Injection Machine together with the intention of going into business together. Our injection molder was from buster beagle 3d and came as a parts kit. Our project is still ongoing, and we have so far gotten decent results from our machine.
My role in this partnership was to use my experience with polypropylene to aid in troubleshooting any problems with our process. Additionally, I researched many aspects of plastic and injection molding. Neither of us started with any experience in injection molding, but now we are very close to launching an injection-molded product together. This project is an ongoing work in progress.
