Vacuum Forming for the Sci-Fi Modeler

Vacuum forming using a homemade vacuum former. I built a machine based on plans purchased from Workshop Publishing (designed by Doug Walsh). The one I built can handle three different sized sheets up to 12”x18”. Quick discussion about pattern design and limitations of vacuum forming. Demo the vacuum former using sample pattern. I will also have available a small commercially available dental vacuum forming machine to demo for those that don’t wish to build one. Optional: Attendees will be encouraged to bring in patterns and styrene sheet they would like to be vacuum formed.
