Vacuum Forming Mold Making – Maker Faire 2008



I saw this guy, Richard Jacobsen, demonstrate how to make a vacu-form mold using parts in total that all costs less than $300.

He was a super nice guy, and his demonstration was perfectly clear. All you need is a heat source, plywood frames to hold the styrene (plastic), a rubber mat with a hole in it, and a shop vac.

It worked brilliantly.
