DIY rotomolding machine

Product Design students Andrew Duffy, Craig Tyler and Edward Harrison built this cordless drill powered table top rotational molding machine in order to learn more about the process.

To have an idea is one thing, to fully understand the process is paramount to good design.

The D.I.Y rotation moulding machine was built to replicate the industrial process to help further understand its possibilities. The machine was built at no cost from scrap materials and simply powered by a cordless drill. With the use of cold setting bio resins, Andrew and Craig are now able to create a fully sustainable range of hollow plastic products.
