Interesting Thermoplastic machine from Robot Factory

Recommended Posts

Just got an email from the same folks who sold the copperplating kit, about their new thermoplastic 3d forming thingy, lol at the part they 'cut' open the already open box.

 

 

Look good for simple repeat molds, but nothing that has areas that have gaps or cavities. cheaper than buying silicone for many small objects, but I like unusual shapes too much so i doubt i could put it to much use.

Common vacuum forming.  Pretty light duty and limited usage I'd say.  I hope they aren't charging more than a $150.

 

Yup... I doubt the setup can do anything other than what was shown in the video. Sure some people might find use of it but more likely it would be purchased, get used once or twice, and sit on a shelf. There are far more capable thermoformers out there for reasonable pricing or DIY setups.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
