tool construction

The challenge was casting such a large figure, working with the engineers at Freia we discovered the shrinkage in chocolate would not allow us to do it in one piece. the decision was made to split it into 4, we developed a method to split the statue into 4 pieces but maintain clean join lines. 

We used or reliable partners at Shape AS to produce the foam forms for the vacuum forming and Plexx to carry out the production on the plastic parts. Pivot then manufactured the wooden jig to align and clamp the tools under casting. 

In addition Pivot 3D printed a 30cm figure and create a silicon tool to produce a scale figure of the winner.
