I like the idea and I'm going to print it but I think pegboard for the top will be better.

wont the hot soft plastic stick to the 3d printed plastic?

No it does not :)

ok great to know thx.

Nicely made. I made my vac former out of a cookie sheet and plywood years ago

Step 4 in the manual has incorrect spelling of HDPE, you spelt it HPDE

This is a great project.

My printer is too small, alas.

How small is your printer?

I am a wood worker and this idea could be used with a thick sheet of plastic or thick bag, for vacuum glue ups for small complicated to clamp parts, Well done. I will defiantly give it a try. Can you tell me if a standard shop vac hose would fit in it?

Hi tibuck,
The generic vacuum adapter should fit most vacuums, its dimensions are based off a universal vacuum hose conversion adapter.
If the generic vacuum adapter doesn't fit your vacuum let me know, I'll make a custom adapter for you.

thank you, once I hit reply I though of that too, I could simply make one to fit. Great idea btw.
