This study focuses on the forming of dynamic microstructure of flexible polymer. The dynamic tensile control microstructure of the polymer mold, along with the gasbag, was used to exert pressure to achieve forming. This study simulated the dynamic control of the flexible mold, and proposed four mechanical models of material viscoelastic response for modeling and evaluation. MATLAB software was used to calculate the imprint prediction calculation theory construction according to the imprint result of curved surface and asymmetric imprint forming. This study designed and developed a gasbag-assisted dynamic forming system, and tested the proposed system for verification. The test results showed that the mechanical stability, curved surface, and asymmetric imprint prediction calculation of the mechanical model of the viscoelastic response of flexible mold material, as proposed in this study, can display the geometric features of the imprinted microstructure. The dynamic mold microstructure control process can accurately transfer a bifacial microstructure and construct the confidence interval for transfer printing forming. View Full-Text
