The action of the material fluctuating when it is heated up and cooled down into the mold.
Mold cavities are built scaled larger than the resultant parts to account for the tendancy of material to shrink when it is cooled and its molecules become less active. Shrink factors for materials are known and published by the maker of the various resins. Shrink contributes to many molding defects and issues but can be avoided if the parts are built properly. Due to shrink factor compensation, molds are designed for particular resins and might not perform as well for materials with greatly differing shrink factors.
The change in size of the part during solidification, typically anticipated based on published material property data and built into the mold design prior to machining.
