I am struggling to figure out how to create a slide for the mold I am designing. I have looked at the tooling tutorials but they are not very helpfull when it comes to something which doesn't follow the tutorial workflow.
In the case of our product I require that the cavity which has been created to be split down the centre into two halves (essentially the cavity becomes the slides). I have tried a number of methods to achieve this but can't get it right.
Please could someone point me in a direction which may help.
From your attached pictures and description, I recommend you to use rectangular workpiece(not cylindrical workpiece). After you created the core and cavity, you can create two inserts of cavity, let each insert has half of it.
