If you have some items that you would like to make some vacuum formed molds of and have access to a 3D printer this Vacuum Former project might be for you. All you need to do is place your item in the form. The plastic form material is heated then dropped over the item to be molded and a high power vacuum cleaner is used to suck the plastic down to conform to the item. Once you have the plastic form you can now pour some casting material into the mold. This can be plaster, chocolate, rubber, etc.

    This looks like a beginning of an interesting trend. The vacuum forming apparatus itself has very simple forms which you would not normally consider a good match for 3D printing – way,way cheaper to make it using traditional techniques and materials. 3D printing is nothing new but for the last 30 years it was mostly used for making something unique, finely shaped, with internal spaces where a mill would not reach etc., something that cannot be reproduced by any other means. And that pretty much justified the high price.

    Now, it seems, we’ve reached some sort of a price range/availability of 3D printing that makes people think of making just about *anything* using a 3D printer. Normally something like this would be made out of plywood and yet here is a 3D-printed vacuum forming device. Interesting times are ahead in DIY!
