    Hi Guys,
    i am analyzing the surfaces of a hull with Rhinoceros to develop a plug.
    The purpose is to make a mold for Vacuum Bag process lamination (Vacuum Infusion).
    I think that the best method to have a mold without issues could be a dismountable mold using the keel as the parting line.
    Could anyone give me tips to maintain the vacuum on the mold to perform the lamination process? I need a gasket on the flanges? Someone use a traditional saelant but i think that is a crude method.
    Thank you for the support

    Guglielmo

    Maybe you can lay a skincoat & seal your bag to that.
