I did this at TechShop Menlo Park. http://www.techshop.com

With a vacuum former you can form food grade plastic to make molds for chocolates and other food items. I documented the process.

Step 1: Turn on vacuum former

Big red switch in the back powers the vacuum former on. The Object to be molded gets placed on the screen and dragged down with big handle on the side. Plastic is loaded into the frame and latched on both sides. Turn on switches  to heat areas as big as plastic sheet.
Looks awesome :) <br> <br>What kind of plastics did you use? PS (polystryreen), pet or abs ? <br>And is it easy to get the chocolate out of the molds ?
