The form design is equivalent to a later series solution: all cores and molds are conventionally produced in the same way. The sand process is used to save time and costs compared to expensive tools.
Purpose: Prototype of a racing intake manifold
Challenge: Many undercuts and cores, complex design
Solution: Splitting of the mold into four parts without any consideration of undercuts and distortions.
