Plastic Overmold Lines
« on: June 16, 2015, 12:13:19 pm »
How do I get rid of the lines that are running through the overmold? I am just using a polypro plastic (hard) and an overmold ,but I end up with unrealistic looking lines in the overmold? What are these from and how do I remove them?

Looks like two surfaces sharing the same space, check your model in those areas that are 'lined' and make sure there are no extra surfaces that shouldn't be there.

This worked. All I had to do was offset by .001" in the Y-Direction to remove these lines. Thanks!
