Domeable Shapes

Sharp Corners:  Avoid sharp corners if possible. The dome has difficulty flowing into sharp points. If you require corners with a radius sharper than 0.1” this can be done but will require additional charges.

Concave Corners:  In most situations ,the minimum concave curve radius is 0.15” at 90°, however the minimum radius changes as the volume of dome increases and as the angle decreases.

Minimum Part Thickness:  Typically, 0.25” is the minimum part thickness. This is a good guideline to follow, but it is not an absolute rule. For example, narrow areas are acceptable on certain designs depending upon the volume of dome surrounding the narrow area and the length of the narrow area. Email an outline of your label to receive approval or recommendations.

Holes:  0.25” Diameter holes can usually be domed on smaller parts. A hole around large volumes of dome may need to be larger.

There are so many variables to consider in determining the domeability of a shape, that you are encouraged to email any scripted or unique shapes for us to review.
