Came across this, thought id post it up sure. Gives you an idea of the size of the tool needed to make a dashboard. At the end of the cycle you can see the ejector pins pushing the finished part off the male tool. These ejector pin embosses can be clearly seen on may plastic parts on the non cosmetic sides/edges.

Skip onto 1.27 to see the cycle starting, and the finished part being ejected, here

The tool used is massive, and costs into the hundreds of thousands to make.

Bit random, but what the hell!
