Thank you very much. This is very relevant to some questions I have right now.

What about preparing a mold interior with a plating of some ratio of gold-platinum or some other material? I read that gold-platinum was used in industry to create process features hot glass will not stick to.

I would love to be able to send a file to a machine shop, get an aluminum mold back, get a plating on it, and use it to mold gobs of glass by pressing into a female mold with a male core.

Being able to take billet glass and convert it to finished parts or preforms would be great and I would appreciate advice.
