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.
