Hello wonderful people. Can anyone help with this mold? 

 
It's a Martellato:

Checked all the usual suspects - looking for a smooth pyramid - about 3.5 cm on each bottom side and a truncated top about 1.4 cm per side.

 

It's a silicone mold someone is using now which needs to be upgraded to polycarbonatw.

So something like this, but polycarbonate?

I have one of these, the cavities are kind of huge so I never use it

Is there a preferred weight? 

 

How about a cone?

Similar to the silicone as you say.

 

She doesn't want ridges at all - and also wants a big surface on the truncated part. She stacks them. I think the one she using now makes something 30 grams or so solid. 

 

Not into a cone - she already makes a product and wants to expand her offerings and make them more easily hence the polycarbonate.

If she could provide a photo of what she makes now, that would help people locate something similar. If you searched and could not find it, I doubt that it exists (like my demisphere I spent days looking for, then gave up and had it custom made). I use a Chocolate World pyramid, but it is somewhat pointed and has ridges on the sides. My experience is that any mold with a fairly large totally smooth area will tend to show release (or similar) marks--though they may due to operator error. If she knows the weight of a finished piece, she can do a search by weight on Chocolate World. What I dislike about J.B. Prince is that weights are not provided.

 Saw that one in my search. I did send it to her in case she would consider it. I suspect it might be a little smaller than she's looking for. The one she is using currently is a silicone mold

This is less of a “name that mold” question and more of a “how would this work?” question. ^_^

 

I’m referring to this bubble bar mold:  http://www.chocolat-chocolat.com/home/chocolate-molds/c378160713/c378157546/p16471988.html

 

The spheres on top look like full spheres, and I’m just wondering how that would work (ie - how the chocolate (with spheres) would come out of the mold).  I hope that makes sense. :-)

I don't know - it's a Cabrellon mold - looks like it's one piece so I wonder if it's a bit of an illusion that the spheres are almost complete.

True, probably an illusion.  They look like spheres, but if I squint in just the right way I can see little domes on top, in which case I’ll pass on this one. :P

 

Update:  I got confirmation that these are indeed domes.  Clever optical illusion, Cabrellon! ;)

This also looks similar to the CW signature mold by chef Kevin Kugel:

I’ve got a few and they work well.
