Take our vacuform machine class Nov. 16th and create your own machine to make custom shapes like the one above, modelled around the Conga 5090 system.

If you’ve ever wanted to create a quick one sided mold, a nice case for your latest electronics project, a handle for that raygun, or a body for that RC robot that’s lurking around the garage you’ve probably wanted to use the magical powers of vacuum forming. In this class we’ll put together our own vacuum forming jigs using laser cut parts (provided with the class) and learn to use them. We’ll use some heat guns and the assistance of a shop vac to get everything working and we’ll all come back with awesome little plastic replicas that will impress even the most discerning IRC channel. Everyone will take back their own vacuum forming jig but will need a vacuum cleaner and a heat gun to operate it at home.

Sunday, November 15, 2009 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Class + Material fee is $120 (which is very cheap for a vacuform machine)

  6. I am an engineering teacher at Forest Park High School in VA. I would like to make a vac-u-form machine for my students to use. Could I please have a copy of your plans.
