Bonus points for pictures that might have inspired "this". Even more points for sketches of possible applications for "this".

Would very hot fluidic polymorph work - or have i been out in the sun too long........

stop thinking about pouring

Are You going to chisel out the track from  Polymorph.........

Or inject hot glue with a hot glue gun like an injectiion moulding...

I don't know if you can get it fluidic, I get it very hot in the microwave and it is still very thick.

If you did get it fluidic then you would really need a vacuum chamber so that no air gets trapped in the mould.

I really do worry about air pockets.

and rik, here's the page that inspired you :P (see: Molded Track)

Oh let me guess! Those are to make moulds to cast treads in metal for a giant YDM?
that would be great :P
Big treads made from clay? Now your going from wood to ceramics? Very artsy :D

yeah, let's put that in an oven

really looks like a futaba link kit,  but with no pin,  so no gear can drive this

Is it a jewel?    A wristwatch ?

a recent topic about DIY treads gave me an idea : let's make chainsaw tracks  [evil laughter]

ultimate cheap but non-slippy  treads for everyone
