Build a vacuum former like this one to do some vacuum forming. I gather someone else has a similar plan - if you'd like to collaborate then let me know.

  • Should be fairly easy to construct using laser cut parts.
  • Vacuum source will be a standard vacuum cleaner.
  • Heat source will be a heating element from an oven or similar.

Can then make stuff like this:
