We just finished building a carbon fiber part called the trunnion frame. This structural component transfers loads from the landing gear into the rest of the airframe. It was made on a male mold using a manufacturing process called infusion. The mold for this part was a bit different than our standard molds. Normally we CNC cut a mold pattern from tooling board and then use the mold pattern to create a final mold. The trunnion frame mold was instead directly CNC cut from an assembly of MDF stock.
