What have you vacuum formed?


Recommended Posts

I bought a new dental vacuum former, and I’m just wondering what you have vacuformed? Most know you can do canopies, and sometimes doors, but what else? Has anyone made moulds?

The canopy was glued to the frame, then filled completely with Apoxie Sculpt. I painted it with Revell enamel coal black for reasons I don't remember. Then I spotted an asymmetry in the rear half of the canopy, that was built up with more Apoxie Sculpt. I thought I was ready for vacforming, but realised the bottom of the master was concave, meaning the master would probably crack under the vacuum. So I had to build a supporting base, as shown in the first reply. All in all a lot of work!!
