This varies by mold, but generally the molds are “seasoned” after 2 to 10 parts. The costs to perform this “seasoning” are not factored into your per-part cost because the  necessary quantity cannot be accurately predicted.

Upon mold approval, the remaining 50% is due before actual production starts. All prototype parts remain the property of  Desert Plastics until final mold payment is received.
