Title: Capcraft Hub - Updates & Tom Foolery Herein
Post by: Binge on Sat, 27 July 2013, 18:24:27
Hello Geekhackers,

This is an update as well of a summary of my trek into keycap prototyping and casting. 
First I’d like to thank every one of my backers which made my start up possible.  It all started with this post

Without the support of these individuals I would be several steps behind in my workflow.

When I started out with this project my mind was set on making a cast plastic figure of a modified keycap.  Brobots, Clickclack, Nubbinator, and others were really inspirational to me, and the unknowns of their craft had me drawing mold making concepts, keycap concepts, and planning out my next few months’ income to facilitate tinkering.  The resulting experience could be a great read, inspirational, or just plain boring enough that I’ve felt it important to detail.  Trolololol to all ya bored folks. :p

Part 1 – Sculpting a Concept

Before I could make molds it was really important that a prototype/master figure was made.  A surplus of gamer profile keys from Signature Plastics keycapsdirect.com were just what I needed to get going.  These caps would provide me with a wide base on which to sculpt.  From this base I developed the following shopping list by which to minimize cost and achieve maximum versatility with this project. 

**Disclaimer: Please exercise caution when using any materials listed in this write-up.  Some of them are highly toxic and a little bit of reading and use of protective clothing are conducive to a healthy lifestyle**


-Super Sculpey, Polymer Clay
-Apoxy Sculpt, Epoxy Clay
-Wax Sculpting Tools (dentists sculpting tools)
-Nitrocellulose lacquers

Super Sculpey – Polymer Clay is neat.  This is a thermoset which is semi-solid and bakes hard.  The gamer profile keys I use as bases are PBT and PBT will not change state in the temperatures used to set this material. Temperatures for Super Sculpey, 275 °F (130 °C). 15 min/ 1/4 in (6 mm) thickness.  (Not toxic, not food safe)

Apoxy Sculpt – Epoxy meets a filler material and cures rock hard.  This stuff is awesome and requires no baking. The material is two-part and sets hard in 3 hours without exposure to oxygen, and no heat is generated during this process.  I’ve gotten it to stick to metal, wood, POM, ABS, and PBT.  High retention of detail and the end result responds well to sanding/painting. (Highly Toxic)

Wax Sculpting Tools – Every kind of poke, pull, scoop, or slice you could think to apply to your medium a standard set of Wax Sculpting utensils will do the trick.

Nitrocellulose Lacquers – Great for most applications on plastic.  The lacquers will slightly harm the surface of your plastics and bond with them.  The benefit is the hardness and the drawback is the permanence.  Without a lot of care or brush control the only solution for screwing up is to let it dry and use MOAR PAINT! (Highly Toxic)

Between starting and following through my perception of this task changed.  With it I developed an understanding that to do this one needs a little bit of coordination, patience, and time, lots of time, to dedicate to the figure.  In the past few months I’ve made over 20 sculpts.  Each sculpting takes from start to finish, including paint, about 5 hours.  Without paint about half of that time is taken from the project bringing a complete sculpture to 2.5 hours give or take 30 minutes.  I’m sure with more practice this time could be taken down to an hour, but that is a stretch.

From concept to finished product has been a bit more of an adventure than just playing with clay.  These materials, in one way or another, produce a challenge to overcome by exercising great care.  With Super Sculpey temperature is a problem for working with most standard keycaps, Apoxy Sculpt uses toxic chemicals to harden, and nitrocellulose paint produces fumes which make most people feel pretty terrible.  Like I mentioned earlier the more knowledge one has about their medium the less it will harm person or project with just a bit of care.

Part 2 – Mold Making

Interesting sculptures are just the beginning and all of the mold-making ideas I had considered were ready to be tested.  There are two kinds of molds as far as I’m concerned for this application which are known as single, and two part molds.  A single mold takes the least time to make, and it is technically the least complicated to implement.  The single mold is also easy to destroy for a number of reasons.

(http://i.imgur.com/oE100wf.jpg)

The reasons to avoid single molds for keycaps are only ones I can conceptualize.  I have spent no man moments, minutes, or hours practicing key-craft with this technique.

I am primarily concerned with demolding.  Demolding is the act of removing your finished subject from the mold.  Most single molds are open backed or single sprue* and used to make candles, soap, pendants, or set props.  I just don’t see this technique as being practical for making keycaps.

Being a two-part mold man I can say a lot about them… a whole lot.  I used to think about two part molds during my breaks at work, while spending time with my fiancé, meals, and sometimes in my dreams.  There was always room for improvement or a new method to ensure success until I accidentally made the best 2 part mold for my application after acquiring a pressure system.

When you make a 2 part mold it is cast in two stages and one or both parts may contain a sprue*.  The first stage captures a part of the subject, and once it cures the mold is flipped over with the subject still inside the mold.  After the mold is turned over a release agent is applied and another layer of molding material is poured to cast the 2nd part of the subject.  When I cast two part molds I capture the top of the key and then the bottom.  Capturing the bottom last ensures that the connecting joint is at the bottom of the key. The joint at which the molds connect can allow some liquid thermoset to escape and if that buildup occurs at the bottom of the key there is very little work in cleaning up the cast figure.

(http://i.imgur.com/MUN2q5U.jpg)

I will detail the methodology behind my current molding system once it proves effective for long enough.  So far, at the time of writing, out of about 7 casts 4 have come out without any visible defect.  There are a number of variables that cause blemishes in cast plastic, and once I narrow down the cause I can determine if the molding needs to change.

*Sprue: The path by which liquid fill enters and air escapes a mold.

Part 3: Casting

With a proper two part mold made from a proper subject I have been able to produce great casts.  The process of refining these casts involved a lot of theory.  At first I started with a two piece mold, measuring cups, and a pourable thermoset.  The resulting cast greatly varied based on the mold design.  There’s a lot of experience which developed this understanding, and to help communicate my findings I will make sure to list them as simple theories.

Theory #1: The materials and tools available with which to cast thermosets will determine the shape, dimensions, and sprue locations of the mold.

Before making my master molds with pressure equipment it took me 5-6 molds before I had a working system for successful hand-poured casts.  It is also far easier to capture simple shapes and cast them with a hand-poured mold than it is something complex like my hand-e-caps.

If one were to work with a mold and hand pouring system I would recommend a low viscosity opaque urethane plastic such as Smooth-on 320/Task 3.  Because making a mold is also a form of casting I would recommend the same.  Smooth-on makes OOMOO RTV silicone which is great for hand pouring, and platinum cure silicone known as Mold Star.  There are other manufacturers of plastic resins, and molding rubbers but Smooth-on is based out of Easton Pennsylvania which is local and makes shipping a smooth process.

To help with understanding of viscosity here is a chart of terms/measurements for viscosity.

With my experience and a little bit of research I’ve learned a bit about my thermoset of choice, urethane plastics.  To better help people understand what I’ve learned below is a point summary of useful information.
-   Liquid urethane plastics are A/B mixture thermosets which generate their own heat using a chemical reaction resulting in a cured solid.
-   Curing urethane thermosets are affected by atmospheric conditions including but not limited to temperature, humidity, and pressure.
-   The quality of a urethane thermoset cure can be enhanced by a post-cure process.  This process is usually a heat treatment @ 150 deg F.  Time and temperature for post-cures are detailed in material technical sheets.  Please read your technical sheets.  Do not under any circumstance post cure in an oven used for food.  You will poison yourself.
-   Clear urethane plastics and opaque urethane plastics may react with the addition of chemically suspended plastic/dye based pigments.  Reactions include but are not limited to the production of additional gasses.
-   Opaque urethanes are significantly less toxic and have lower surface tensions than clear urethanes.  With hand pouring techniques an opaque urethane will produce better results.
-   Chemical sensitivity to parts A/B of urethanes and silicones are common and can be prevented with proper safety wear.  E.g. liquid proof gloves, filtration breather, safety goggles, and long leg/long sleeve clothes.
-   Thermosets vary in cure-time and pot life.  The trend of thermosets is that the longer the cure-time/pot life the lower the shrinkage.  I find it very hard to work with quick set urethanes as the slightest mistake will waste time and material.

Theory #2:  When creating a finished product the viscosity, surface tension, and additives of/to liquid thermosets will ultimately determine the need for additional tools.

When starting out I purchased Smooth-Cast 325 which is low viscosity, but the surface tension of the liquid would impede off-gassing.  The air mixed into the A/B solution would suspend and any of that air would expand once poured into the mold once the urethane began to cure as a result of its thermoset reaction.  Due to the high surface tension of this material any oxygen which was in the mold and became trapped would have to be “fished” out.  I used a thin metal tube or straw prodded into mold crevasses to extract trapped air.  This additional step in a hand pouring process will not work with a mixed thermoset pot life under under 5 minutes.  Smooth-Cast 325 has a 3 minute pot life, and every cast I made with hand-pouring failed.  I could also not have used a vacuum degassing chamber as it would have taken too much time to degass.  The material was most likely best for open back single-piece molds or very thick molds.  If a thicker mold were rolled/turned during its curing process bubbles would have travelled into the center only to be captured.  If it is not yet obvious there’s just too much to be considered when choosing materials/methods, and hand pouring will create a challenge for anyone making keycaps without additional tools.

Tools used in casting and their function,

Filling syringe: This tool is the best means by which to fill parts of a mold with great control.

Vacuum chamber:  A vacuum treating of silicone/urethane before pouring will result in less cast defects.  This solution requires a vacuum pump to function.

Pressure Pot: Pressurized casting is a process which pulverizes trapped air, and forces liquid into places air pockets would normally create a void in the finished product.  This solution requires a pressurized air pump to achieve pressure.

Gram Scale: 90% of casting resins are mixed in ratio by weight.  Scales measure weight.  Zip zop boom.

Measuring cups:  Buy this stuff from a resin supply place.  They make these cups out of materials which will not contaminate liquid plastics and rubbers.

After acquiring a pressure pot and playing with a bunch of Smooth-on’s available stock of plastics and rubbers I have been able to work out a mold and shopping list to go forward in making 99-100% defect free casts.  I’d be happy to discuss my process in great detail with anyone who is hitting a brick wall, but there are just some things I will not detail with everyone.  I have a limited understanding, and I believe that anyone reading this and asking the right questions will determine what works best for them and their project.  To summarize any novice caster will benefit from my two theories, and should be able to grow considerably with information contained in this post.

Theory #1: The materials and tools available with which to cast thermosets will determine the shape, dimensions, and sprue locations of the mold.
Theory #2:  When creating a finished product the viscosity, surface tension, and additives of/to liquid thermosets will ultimately determine the need for additional tools.

It's pre-cast at this point.  It is a resin based epoxy, and it's finally set up and hard.

This is going to give me nightmares, great sculpting though. What resin did you use? It reminds me of teh 2 part long set I used to use for sculpting 40k minis, it was a 2 part red/white made by the same people who do GreenStuff which is a 2 part blue/yellow.

It's part white/flesh and it's called Apoxie Sculpt.  It is an epoxy "clay" but really a resin.

In the spirit of domo and since I have made a lot of talk without putting up much info/goods... here are my molds and resulting proto cast hand-e-cap!

So when I started this I knew nothing about casting and molding keycaps... hell I had never sculpted before :D

Maybe a few people would enjoy a few ideas swimming around, and so I decided I was going to learn how to make keycaps with relative proficiency!

Step 1 - Make a design. [FAILED]

Guyez I'd say I failed.  For a few weeks I was sitting at work doodling unicorns pooping on leprechauns before the hand-e-caps even come to mind.  I've always wanted a high-five'in cap but I forgot about it...

Step 2 - get a basic key to mod.

First stop? signature plastics!  There could have been a cheaper solution, but to my luck I had spent money on the gamer profile caps from SP :D  They didn't work for me so I had flat bases for sculptures... coool :)

Step 3 - Buy materials.

I bought polymer clay, epoxy clay, and a number of other bawsome materials until I settled on Apoxie Sculpt and Super Sculpty.  Apoxie Sculpt being an epoxy clay, and Super Sculpty being a really sick polymer clay.

Step 4 - Sculpt~

Yeah it happened and so did the hand-e-cap.  This needed to be a mold and cast.  Which brings me to step 5

Step 5 - Use the plastic to buy plastic.

Smooth-on should be a lil bit more rich because I have NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING.  Like Domo I've done a bit of research, but I decided on a different route.  For one I can not afford any machinery to make this process easier/more clean.

This brought me to a mold casting material I know many people use.  Smooth-on oomoo 30.  Screw Mold Max because measuring is for people with impulse control.  It would have been minutes until I just dumped everything I had into the mixing bucket and tried to work from there.  Oomoo 30 is a 30A hardness silicon rubber when cured that comes in a low viscosity A-B mixture and has a pot time of 30 minutes.  I have learned that pot time is very important for the letting of bubbles.

What I failed to realize in my haste to get to bingeing is that my casting material Smooth Cast 325 was a horrible choice for not having a pressure chamber.  This stuff has a 2 minute pot time.  Which is great because it cures really quickly, but unfortunately that leads to a lot of trapped air in the mold.  By the time the material is poured into the small mold bubbles were unable to escape from the now thickening plastic. :(  I had to buy Smooth Cast 327.  It's on the way.

Step 6 - Fiddle with it.

2 molds later I have this.

Which has produced this...

(http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13574727/20130806_235735.jpg)

There are visible bubbles in the hand but none in the stem which is better than a clear hand and a bubbly stem IMO!

For the first keycap to come from my improved mold I am really pleased with the results and for those out there itching to get one this means I'll be making quite a few over the weekend :)  The 327 should be here by then which will make this much easier.

There has not been much instruction here, but feel free to ask any questions about the project and my results :)

hahaha, well actually Bunnylake was my first for R1 to inquire.  Because of that I offered to do a series of caps for him.  They are Bunny Gentlemen caps and each is numbered 1/3 2/3/ 3/3 on the underside of the cap.

The Nigel cap was really easy for me to make with the new material (epoxy clay) because I had so much experience making those mustached rabbits xD

Instead of using a SP cap as the basis for the mold of the bottom, you should use a thicker cap, such as a Cherry one.

That would require me to re-make my entire sculpture. :(

I've had to cast a few molds from the model and it finally broke

The fingers came off as I was removin it from the silicon

Now get this... the resulting mold is perfect EXCEPT when I poured a cast the resin did not set up properly, and how my hands have a fresh coat of resin. :)

Title: Re: Hand-e-Cap
Post by: Binge on Sun, 11 August 2013, 03:15:21
sadly there are bubbles and they show more when there is an LED underneath :(  I think the lavender one is the most solid I've ever gotten.  It might have voids as well, and really it is all a huge headache to get rid of all of them.

The look of this cap is a result of the last hand-e-cap mold that will ever be made.

The original hand-e-cap is gone and destroyed... it bit the dust.  As long as this mold survives more hand-e-caps can be made :)

I'll tell you this particular mold has 12 drainage points  and it takes a lot more finishing work to look good :(

so minor derail, but tj, you and i were talking the other night about taking resins, a single community vacuum or pressure pot and degassing these thermosets then sending them out like clay, unset in big chunks or small plastic containers. it makes no sense for literally everyone to have a bunch of vacuum and pressure equipment; it's expensive, it's dangerous, and it's only justifiable if you're moving volumes of caps.

binge, can you point me to the pots you were looking at and both you and tj, to the resins so i can get a good idea of what preparation is required to produce a thermoset block that is low-flaw bulk material and can be used for casting, mold making, etc?

I'm a little fuzzy on those details myself... mailing cured urethane plastics would mean they are chemically inert.  When mailing the liquid does require a bit of special packaging and labels.

I would be worried about one person taking on the orders of various GHers because they would be liable for the use of the material and complications with defects.

I am trying to understand how this would work. you would still have to mix the resin and hardener and would still need a pressure pot to remove the bubbles.
the shaking action during shipping would cause more bubbles to occur in the product and it would need to be put in a pressure pot after pouring into a mold.
and... to make a mold that has a smooth finish instead of a matte finish you still... need a pressure pot.

I think the idea is more of a crowd accessible work force of people who will make mold/casts for geekhack.

When he says thermoplastics I believe he also means the possibility of ABS etc.  That's much different than what we've been doing up to this point Domo.

between the two of us we can pretty much handle the east and west coasts :p  possibly getting to use the machines we acquire in order to assist in various projects.

If my sister's husband ever gets into computer aided injection molding we might even have some access to abs castings.

Post by: mkawa on Mon, 19 August 2013, 14:09:01
you can ship the uncured degassed thermosets under vacuum in a bag or hard container if it is filled under vacuum. it isn't inert, but as long as it's not flammable it is shippable.

you may be right that everyone has to have a pressure pot anyway because when you attempt the molding you have to take it out of vacuum at some point.

as far as injection molding thermoplastics is concerned, the limiter there is, as usual, tooling. i have been working pretty hard to make machining accessible and there is a long term plan that will allow me to do small scale machining for low pressure mold tooling, but serious mold tooling has to be done at a large gb level. it makes some sense because precise tooling is so expensive that it's only more efficient than positive or negative prototyping and low volume production machines (mills, lathes, grinders, straight up filing, ffm, FDM, etc.) if your volume is very very large.

and yes, there is community mold-making already. abs molds for keycap sized parts are very very possible to build with FFM printers, hand tools and a few solvents.

Post by: mkawa on Mon, 19 August 2013, 14:12:27
oh one more thing. partial curing IS actually possible with some resins. BUT it's a pretty special property, so i don't know how accessible these kinds of setting polymers are.

crystal clear 200 is very very temperamental. it has a 16 hour cure time and I post cured it for 1 hour afterwards then let it cool for another hour before demolding.
I would pick a much faster resin next time like poly-optic 1410

edit: 1410 is also a much harder resin when finished

for others that have no idea what we are saying ....

I plan to do caps in clear, solid colors and black

clear = smooth-on crystal clear 200 = 80D 16 hour cure time + 4-6 hour post cure @ 150F + 1 hour cooldown then demold

clear = poly-optic 1410 = 80D 2 hour cure time  + 4-6 hour post cure @ 150F + 1 hour cooldown then demold

solids = smooth-on 325 = 72D = 10 minute cure time + 4-6 hour post cure @ 150F + 1 hour cooldown then demold

black = smooth-on onyx fast = 80D =  15 minute cure time + 4-6 hour post cure @ 250F + 1 hour cooldown then demold

DO NOT POST CURE IN YOUR KITCHEN OVEN!!!
toxic fumes from the resin can get you and your family very ill.
use a toaster oven and wrap your mold & casting in foil first.



edit: 70D/72D/80D this is how hard the resin gets.

I have to upgrade the safety valve on mine because it sometime pops... keep that in mind.
also make sure that you use teflon tape on every single piece.

if the top leaks.... I removed mine and put in silicone molding as a gasket. just don't cure the silicone material with the top on the pot. it will never come off.

The safety valve is rated for 80 PSI, the top has a silicon gasket installed, and all of the parts have been installed with teflon tape :)

Tested some of the equipment earlier.  I need to make sure I understand how the compressor works.  It has a gauge for tank pressure and a gauge for pressure in the line.  Would that line pressure also mean tank pressure at some point?  I bought the compressor that I did in hopes that I could install fewer parts, but I don't mind buying a gauge for the pot as well.
Title: Re: Hand-e-Cap
Post by: domoaligato on Tue, 27 August 2013, 23:42:48
I have 2 gauges on my pot. one before the valve to let the air in and one on the pot where the paint is supposed to blow out.

pressure test the tank over night. if you get over 10 psi drop overnight then you have a major leak.

mix some dawn dish soap in some water and rub this on all the areas that could have a leak. it will blow little bubbles from the area that leaks.

Binge those are fantastic! So great to see how far you've come in such a short amount of time  :thumb:

You seem to have a knack for tongues, any way you'd do me a Rolling Stone's inspired cap?

I don't see why that would be an issue, but I might need reminding if another round starts.

YAY! I'll be camping out for another round then :)

sir... do you know what the average rating on the safety valve is on that pot?

I have to upgrade the safety valve on mine because it sometime pops... keep that in mind.
also make sure that you use teflon tape on every single piece.

if the top leaks.... I removed mine and put in silicone molding as a gasket. just don't cure the silicone material with the top on the pot. it will never come off.
not all silicone sealant is the same! READ THE DATASHEET FOR YOUR SILICONE CAREFULLY. good rtv silicone sealants/gasket makers will give you ultimate tensile strength at their thickest allowable application most silicones can't stand up to that kind of heat and pressure.

the heavy duty permatex and motivative silicones are exactly what the doctor ordered for this application. in fact, i have this insane RTV159 that you could probably set a pressure pot cap out of.

Part 2 of the mold is poured, and once I arrive home at 8pm tonight we'll see results.  Part 1 had 0 bubbles and captured the subjects beautifully.
Title: Re: Hand-e-Cap
Post by: Binge on Fri, 30 August 2013, 10:29:42
[attach=1]

I know the picture above really sucks, but I thought it was worth illustrating what is happening with these molds.

Legos are pretty cool.  When pouring into legos the connection "bumps" are all accessible to the silicon.  This means that the silicon mold can be used in conjunction with regular legos.

In picture 1, I create a mold for my keycap tops.  The keycap bottoms are hollow and do not accept any silicon.  When the mold is released there is still air under the keys.

after the silicon cures the mold is flipped over and a lego structure is built on the mold to use as a large inlet for pouring.  That's right... I built a lego structure into the mold.  Why?  BECAUSE IT COULD WORK REALLY WELL >:O

Yes the difference is pretty intense.  We should skype sometime and compare experiences.  I've been messing around with more of smooth-on's materials and came across a few great options.

Title: Re: Hand-e-Cap
Post by: mkawa on Sun, 01 September 2013, 00:29:06
so binge, remember how we were talking about partially cured thermosets? here's the thermoset bible in abridged form. the short answer is that most thermosets can be partially cured. what actually happens it that a thermoset is defined as a poly that goes from a goo full of monomers and slag and what have you and then as you put energy into it goes into a glass transition and then eventually becomes a gel. hence, there are three distinct phases to most thermosets during the application of energy

A: no energy. goo

B: vitrification. some monomers have joined into polymer networks. however, the compound is generally considered glass and the thermoset has not set, which is marked by:

C: gelification. this is a full cure and means that the thermoset has become a single infinitely long polymer network (that is, unlike say thermoplastics and most other polymers, there are no end-caps to the polymer chains, thermosets are defined by the fact that they form cyclical polymer networks at full cure, and actually less by the fact that energy makes them hard. what it specifically does to them is make these cyclical polymer networks.

you can suspend a thermoset in a state of vitrification with impurities (eg, air) removed. since it's glass at this point (B), it shouldn't take on additional air bubbles. obviously this depends on the thermoset material properties. sets for which state B is very soft are obviously going to have a harder time being partially set, for example.

so in short, all you need is one compession pot and a carefully chosen thermoset for an entire community to have molding material. pretty cool considering we went from 0 to 2 in a flash ;)

I'm interested in the process of how you made the latest caps, mind sharing?

This entire thread is all about how I've been making the caps.  I also did a live demo at keycon where I discussed a bit of the process.  Without making things too hard for me would you be able to narrow down your point on inquiry?  It would really help me deliver useful information :D

*SNIP*

Why work with thermosets that are partially cured instead of the two part chemicals domo and I have been using?  Maybe I missed something, and I'll do a bit more reading, but I'm really just trying to grasp the more learned understanding and try to apply it to what creative process exists.

the partial curing was so that you could use your pots to prep gas-free partially cured urethanes and ship them out to other people who can shape them and then finish the cure. it's an easier way of loaning out your pots :)

That is very intriguing.  I would like to know more about -what- materials would stop reacting in the absence of O2, and how they could be packaged for shipping while remaining free of contaminants.

you know those space bags and that vacuum sealer crap they sell at costco?

yah, that. as far as transportation is concerned that will work. quite well. just spec your bags at like 8-10 mil HDPE (low gas permeability). and don't rely on a check valve. suck all the o2 out and then melt a seal.

as far as materials are concerned, we have to dive into the datasheets on the smooth-on urethanes and on other thermosets and elastomers. i'm pretty sure natural rubber actually has this properly, actually, so it's quite a fundamental property of thermosets. meaning, you have to work on your compound to break the A -> B -> C phase change series rather than the other way around.

none of it.  I cleaned out a cup which I had used before for urethanes.  To clean it I used a touch of mineral spirits.  I don't believe that could have change it this drastically, but then again... nothing else changed :(

I use acetone to clean up and it works very well as long as you have not let the resin harden when you use it.

I also bought a bunch of these on the cheap so I do not care if I just toss them after a few uses.

I'll have a few interesting things to share here in a couple days.  Trying to iron out the details and make waves.  All of my keys are no longer available in the classifieds until further notice.  This has nothing to do with the quality of the keys.  I'd like to use them for promotional material.

I can now see why you're working on v3! v2 has some clearance issues... but it still works. I'm just kinda afraid of breaking it as it comes in contact with the kb case.

The moose look even better in person. So the handecap was cast as 1 piece? and the moose is 2 piece (molded together)? Interesting.

Have you attempted to do any double shots?

I'm not aware of the hand-e-caps and clearance issues, but everyone uses different cases.  Don't worry the switch would probably break before the keycap :x... wait uhhh xD

The hand is cast from a 2 piece mold.  So... moose and hand use the same method of molding.  I hope this explains things.

I don't have the tooling to make an honest to goodness double shot.  If I create multiple colors they will be applied with a filling syringe.  I have not attempted this method with my current molds/subjects as it is time consuming, costly, and prone to defect.  Expect developments in the future. :D

Plans for the future,

Recently there have been a few milestones reached in my exploration of casting.  I certainly don't want to just fall into a groove where growth is prohibited, and at the same time my lack of a real world social life has me labeled as a hermit by the people I love the most.  Some might find that to be a problem and I've been told to just slow down or make time by giving up this hobby all together.

I miss my friends, but I also miss creating things that people enjoy.  I miss making things that I enjoy. 

My sister is very similar to me in a great number of ways, and recently we spent some time chatting about this project during my cousin's wedding.  She's much more talented than I am, so I was excited to hear her thoughts and gather anything I could from her experience in making models, casting, and concept design.

She is a freelance artist and occasionally takes on contracts from companies for type-set and large poster/banner art, but her background is a little bit in everything.  Right now she is trying to find some smaller projects to work on, and inevitably I asked her to do some sculpts and prints for us here at GH.

That would mean another set of hands making new caps for my Binge-Caps project as well as the chance for folks to get some rather interesting keyboard related artist prints!  Excited?  I totally am.  She seemed pretty excited to have the chance to try something new, so I hope this shows her a little bit more about where her art can reach.

I'm asking to get her to provide me with her tumblr page so that everyone can be updated with photos of her work regarding prints and other small projects.

:)

Only three keys made it out being functional.  Something just isn't setting correctly.  It seems like color is seriously interfering with cure times.  A set like this could theoretically take 4-5 hours to cure.  At 3 hours they were not yet entirely hard.  These also had some terrible effects on the mold they were in, but that could have been the conditions of the molds to begin with.

Dog: The mint choco bears/hand are a really puzzling thing.  They aren't really something I'd put my name on because of how they did not mold correctly... but on the same token I freaking love them for coming out as well as they have.

Multi color and I have not done very well together.  I'm not sure what it is or why it happens that way but it just never turns out quite right :(

Anyone who got some of my perfect 2 color caps are very lucky.  Out of several attempts I've only ever had one set come out correctly...

Yesterday, communistwitchdr had approached me with an idea. 

He called it,

 
Quote
U-cap.  The concept is that a person would send a
face of some sort: animal, human, or robot. A caricature would be sculpted
based off of the photo on a key of the buyer's choice.

Now- I took the idea and ran with it.  The key would be cast up to 10 times or until the mold breaks in the colors of the person's choosing.

In the end the recipient would have at most 10 keys of the master caricature, and they would get the mold it was made in.  The mold would be signed, and an accompanying note would contain details as to the date the key was made and color.

I'm not terribly fond of this because of the workload, and so it would not be cheap.  I've considered doing more sculpts in addition to casting, but honestly they both take up so much time >.<  Getting the custom sculpt cap orders complete has not been easy.  They just take up GOBS of time. Time which is simultaneously being taxed trying to keep my supplies from expiring and refining my casting/mold making techniques.

I've made a new kind of mold technique which should increase the longevity of each mold I produce.  The only byproduct is about 2 hours of prep for each stage of the mold.  But if a mold can last for 20-30 casts before breaking it would be worth it.

That's all there is for today.  U-cap? New mold techniques.  Yup :)

Hey Binge, if you're up for it, you could also do custom caps for people by instead of taking an idea and producing the master yourself, have people send you the master and then you create the mold and casts from it.

(PS. Thread lurker here, your caps are awesome!)

Ah I know what you're saying and it makes perfect sense.  What I was suggesting would be more of a services rendered type deal rather than a commission of artistry however.  (Not to say that doing the molding and casting itself isn't an art, it certainly is!)

Regardless, love the caps, and I look forward to seeing what you cast up next!

Yeah I've taken the time since your first post considering the option, and I've decided that unless the right person comes around with the right attitude and expectations I simply would not offer this sort of service.

Live casting?  Do you mean like presenting the process over a video feed?  I've got the entire process outlined in post 1 of this thread, but any time you need help along the way let me know.  Just expect to drop a minimum of $500 on equipment.

By live casting I mean sculpting something out of wax and using that sculpt to make a cast for metals or plastics.

It looks pretty much like what you are doing already. I'm merely just trying to find something to do during the down time I have at work. They won't let me solder stuff (don't blame them), magnetic sculpting has gotten boring, so I'm thinking carving wax into some cool stuff is my next best bet.

I'll go over the OP in detail and get some pointers from you.

I've never heard of live casting, but if you're thinking of using wax, are you perhaps thinking of lost-wax casting (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost-wax_casting)?

Yeah I work with epoxy as my sculpting medium.  I may have to try wax some-time, but who knows if the results would be better than what I'm doing already.

I've only ever heard of lost-wax casting being used for casting metal.. And even then, the masters are usually made in whatever the artist feels like, not necessarily wax.
With lost-wax, the master is used to make a mould (probably rubber of some sort), which is then filled with wax.  The wax cast is cleaned up (remove mould marks, etc) and has sprues added, and then is used to create a second mould made out of investment, which is the one you pour the metal in.

Copper does look a little chocolate-like eh?

Here's an example of old mixture vs new mixture and difference in yields.

Post by: Binge on Wed, 06 November 2013, 13:35:17
hehehe yummy camps I love them!

With the 40% copper (left) the copper would trap oxygen in the mold and even with my equipment the air would not degas.  My new mixture is 20% copper (right) and it seems to be just enough to prevent the issue from happening.  So far I have a couple of these caps made up with the 20/80 mixture-- they are a slower process than most of the other caps.  I am still wary of defects so large batches are not in the stars... for now.

In all what do you think of the metallics vs dual colors?

transthulu looks really nice!

It really does -- give a green translucence, and Cthluoids without keyboards will buy them just to get one of the keys.

minthulhu is going to happen :|

I call first! 

Unless you plan on a green transcthulu  :eek:

I dunno, you tell me if it is good :3

Not that it is too much, but I can't get a camera into the basement where the equipment sits.  I can show a lot of the tools, draw diagrams, and talk about all of the wild ass concepts I have had :p

All of my molds have the image on the top of the cap face down... gravity does some cool things.

Here is the top of the leftover resin from this batch,

(http://i.imgur.com/iaSxtzC.jpg)

Here is the bottom,

(http://i.imgur.com/8pcqVoJ.jpg)

When under pressure there is a lot less movement... I can tell because have some of the keys out of the molds.  Only one out of the 10 didn't make it.  Some of the caps have more silver than others which is a problem caused by mixing so much silver in with a larger resin batch.

Pics to come after the keys completely set.  The addition of metal powder inhibited the reaction some bit, but it will harden completely in about 2 more hours.

NOTE: I had put these molds in the pressure pot at 1 AM, it is now 4:18 AM and the caps are not yet 100% solid.  This is from a 90 minute cure resin.  Factors increasing time-- temperature of 40F in the basement & metal powder.  90 minutes turns into 6 hour cure time in these conditions.  Full cure with final pigment in probably 10-12 hours.

I'm making a batch I want to call Mystic Galaxy.  It will be opaque- blue and various shades of red marbled effect.  It would look much better translucent, but I have been getting some odd yield issues with the semi-clear caps.

I made a total of 14 of those "golden" caps above.  Only those two were good.

I tried to make 4 of those lions because they look so good :D so much fail!

Oh, I had a question -- has anyone embedded an LED in a custom keycap? Would an LED survive the casting process, even? Just wondering out loud. Or, what about moulding the keycap to allow an LED to be attached directly to the bottom after casting?

making a hole that would accept an LED is something more appropriate than casting it into the piece.  If made correctly friction would keep it in place... there's just the issue of it being useful to have in your key.  The rest of the keymakers and I make the tops thick or the LED will overpower the look of the figure on top.

leds are literally just pieces of silicon in fancy plastic cases. so no, no one has tried it but yes, it would survive with aplomb. it would have to be a dip thru-hole LED, so necessarily less efficient, but plenty efficiency to light the crap out of the translucent PU that binge is using. the tricky bit is keeping the LED in the desired position through set. overcasting may help here, because it can simply sit at the top of a layer.

I don't. What I did was take a dremel to the donor key to make the majority of the shape. The epoxy is then added and then I define the shape after dunking it under water for a moment . Being under water gives the tools more control, but hard edges don't come out very well.

Generally paint pots exploding are because someone put more pressure in it than it could take or they did some stupid mods to it.  One I read recently was someone who put what he called "lidsavers" on the clamps that he hot glued in place.  Well, of course one or more of the pads slipped off while in use, causing the lid to fail catastrophically.  Mkawa would disagree with this, but even the Harbor Freight paint pots have been used safely for extended use when some of the parts are upgraded to higher quality parts.

I'm still looking for an affordable usable one though.  Most in my area are a minimum of $400 and go up to $1500.

It can do vacuum and pressure :)

Nice one, did you make it yourself? Are there plans for making one of these that does both?

So far, I've only found people making ones that either do vacuum or pressure, not both.

This particular pot is low capacity.  It has one way inlets and outlets.  It was assembled by MKAWA to do both pressure and vacuum duties :)  It's a workhorse but really has a problem with space.  My larger pot is being worked on at the moment.

Be careful, Binge -- I've heard stories of those things exploding. We can't have a GH artisan exploding. That would suck.

I believe I'm a bit over cautious sometimes.  That is not a paint pot.  It is a pot designed for high pressure chemical storage rated to some 120+ psi.  If it does explode I am luckily working at moderate pressures of 35-60 psi.

In the future I'm going to be building a "shield" to be behind while the units are pressurized.  All control will be behind the shield and I will also have release valve controls as well.

Single colors require significantly less time/effort to make.  Each of the dual shade keys are double shot, and yours with the mica are double shot and mold dusted.

Everyone has a different opinion of what a good green looks like.  I've done very few plain green keys because I find other shades much more pleasant.  Emerald... mint... seafoam... going into teal.  That sort of thing.

He has done the gold and silver, hes done my personal favorite "jelly" they are semi translucent. So these are just a darker solid look I take it. I personally love them! But Jelly are the best.

These are a darker coloring experiment.  It was supposed to look like purple and smoke... it ended up being too much smoke.  Color designation Purple Haze.

This is going to sound like a silly question but... How durable are these caps with regards to everyday wear?

I have one of the lion keyngs as my esc key on the keyboard I use for work. Sure, I don't press esc all that often, but I find myself absentmindedly touching and running my fingers over it a lot. Is that going to wear it down? It's one of my favorite keys right now, so I'd be pretty sad if I ended up damaging it. :c

I would be very surprised if it were to get damaged from touching.

Urethane is a chemical resistant substance.  My urethanes are usually 70-85D hardness and the resins are designed for prototyping machine parts/special effects.

I have hammered one of these with a hammer hard enough to crack it, so be careful around hammers.

Keep me updated though.  I have a few of my own keys I use every day and I watch to see if sunlight/other factors are changing their composition.

Good thing I don't own a hammer. :P
I'll let you know if I notice anything, but I kind of doubt there will be any noticeable change anytime soon either. I was just randomly thinking about how worn down and shiny my old ABS caps had gotten, and I'm not at all familiar with plastics or resins or anything, so that got me a little concerned.

Have you seen the dragon in Minecraft?

The first time I saw one (admittedly via a hack before it was fully released) I just sat and stared at the screen with my mouth open for about 5 minutes.  It was one of the most graceful things I have ever seen in a game.

Oh by the way, Binge, what kind of clay do you use to model these? I'm looking for something that is firm enough to handle the fine details without deforming like my fox's nose did...

Very few were successful in this batch.  Molds are taking poorly to the amount of work they've been put through recently.  I must cast more.

I don't really discuss what I'm going to make in the future.  There's so much of what I really should be keeping under wraps just open in this thread that you can click a few pages back and basically get an idea of the entire upcoming line.  Frosted keys in particular were made to be a seasonal key (particularly the winter months), and I am ready to be done with winter at this point.  The season has cost me entirely too much money!

The Alps guys are here are very passionate and would probably snap up any custom Alps keycaps that become available!

It's for the ESP-950 electrostatic headphone.  This particular headphone requires a voltage bias between 450 and 650V and it needs that supplied by the E/90 energizer or similarly biased energizer in order to operate.

A note to any previous lion keyng owners.  There will be no more :o  That's it, the original master has been changed and there are no more molds for the key.  So if you have em... you gots em.

The deep set eye thing really worked for the previous version, but this one has so much life!  The eyes bring out a lot more action.  That's a feeling I want to bring to my new sculpts. :)

It took me some time going back and forth between pics of the new and old Keyngs, since I really liked the deep-set eyes on the first version. The new version definitely looks more alive rather than being just a sculpture or art piece.

The old lion style will still be made. I just want people to know that it is slightly modified to make better molds.

The new one is still in R&D mode.

Ohhhh.  So just checking--are these turquoise or powder blue?  Sky blue in the US frequently means a cold light blue.  Sky blue in the Asian connotations seems to just be a name for turquoise.  (I.e. sky blue anodizing dye is just turquoise in English from major bye brands).

you made a great inquiry ;)  There will have to be more pictures, but it is a fun cross between the two.  The shimmer coating is turquoise and the key urethane is a light navy.  The light navy mixed with turquoise produces an effect where it shifts from the turquoise to something more true blue.  The only solution is more pictures!

No, but you can use electronic devices during taxi and take-off. No-transmit is still enforce.

However, many Delta flights have Wi-Fi that you can buy for like $8…

I really like the snarling expression of this new one, especially how he seems to be coming forward out of the key.  Definitely like this one over v2 so far. 

On the other hand, I still have love for the statue-like appearance of v1.  It's like having little ancient stone relics (albeit in pretty pink and purple) on my board.  Hmmm... choices, choices.

Thanks Binge for sending an updated newsletter. I clicked on the dates to get a countdown timer, thank you. But it is counting down based on my timezone. So it is showing my (Malaysia) Friday 4/4/2014 at 6pm, which is really Friday 4/4/2014 at 6AM EST.

I think anyone in other timezone that click on the timer would be confused. Don't use the timer. Or you can use this:

You'll find that each key I make has been displayed in this thread via potato pic, and that on the day of sale all keys will be listed with high quality photo taken by DSLR macro in a lightbox.

If you have questions regarding a specific piece of work you may inquire here, by e-mail, or PM.  If you are searching for information not previously released about the contents of a sale please be patient and wait for the sale to occur.  It is not fair to others if I release my sale information here and not in my newsletter.

Please be advised that on occasion hostgator will eat my website.  Do not be alarmed.  Keep trying.

Binge, just saying that in your website I could enter billing address but not credit card info. Do I enter cc info during checkout? That would take precious time away!

Also the billing address form allow me to choose Malaysia as country but then the State field turned out blank and it looks like a mandatory field.

Safest bet is to use pay pal, I think.

@Belfong - Paypal is definitely the best bet.  All purchases are made through paypal.  State is not a required field for international customers.

@exitfire401 - They aren't really a specific profile at all.

Doesn't look like the blue lion from a few pages back was up for grabs. It looks like all of the Lions were V1 during this sale.

]What do you do with your "poop pile?" Are you able to reuse them, or are they just trash. If they are just trash I could take them of your hands. :p They could keep all my other defective caps company.

I don't like to give out defects because I've seen it before where less than whole keys get marked up and traded as if they were a whole key.

The poop pile will eventually be recycled.

And here I was thinking that I probably made a mistake trying to check out with two caps instead of just one. I mean, two in a cart (plus Gator threat) has higher chance of one being not available anymore and causing the site to ask me to revise the cart. To put 4 in and able to fight the Gator is one impressive feat, Hispter!

Hey man, don't be talking down on 'dibs'.  It may be entirely futile, but you can't just not do it.  Because that one time it does matter, it all pays off.  Plus, it's just fun.  :)
