Thanks, this is a prototype made from a 3-d printer. So if you look very close you can see the steps in the material, looks like wood grain. Once it's sanded and fused it resembles a molded part just didn't have to make a mold. The material is ABS

No s#%T!

Man, Id give a Lnut to own a 3d printer.

I had to make wooden split patterns with mirror imaged voids and assembly dowels to create my 2 pc molds and lure bodies. Whew, I get tired just explaining that to people.

You, on the other hand are in Star Trek territory!

Wheres my club and loin cloth?

You know this is the future of lure making as prices fall into the "pay for itself range". I imagine the software is the most expensive aspect. ?

Yes you're right. As the printers get cheaper the pay for itself aspect definitely becomes more real. The software is very expensive although there are many free versions on the Internet. Message me if you would like to talk more about making a mold or parts like these. I think the biggest advantage is that this process allows more time for trial and error and tweaking instead of spending all the time just building the initial prototype
