Ready for the bag

 Here is the spiral, with an extra layer of infusion mesh to carry it up on to the part. I’ve also ran my finger through the spiral to separate it a bit.




Spiral is down the middle, jointed by the t-pieces I printed.







Here you can see the spiral as it’s jointed and is taken around corners. It’s much easier to do it this way than bend the spiral through such tight radii.



Here’s the final part ready for the bag. I’m going to envelope bag it this time – I had a lot of struggles with a bag on the flange. I usually do better when I envelope bag it. The blue bits on the top are little cone-hats I made to give the bag some relief from the socket-headed cap screws. They’re in there against a modified t-nut so I can both use air to get the part out, and have a drain-hole afterwards. The red bit on top is one of the two vacuum exhausts. They’re positioned equidistant between the resin feeds. If I need to direct the flow of resin, I have four inputs, one at each corner.
