Tools and Materials for Laser Cutting
thank you ! ;)
Hi GeoForce I've chose to lasercut everything because I can adjust everything quicklythe first version was a little box of 100 x 100mm to test if our idea workedThen I increased it to 300 x 200mmDuring testing I came to the conclusion that the holes were too big and the material was sucked into the holes and then I reduce the holes and so on...
i've tried it with acrlic of 2.5mm thick but i'm sure it wil work with thicker material too

thanks ! the link you gave me is for how to create a mould?In my instructable you find my design for a DIY vacuum forming machine and how to make it, there is also a section on how to create a mouldI used 3D printing because the mould for the star can not be made by lasercutting because there is a relief on the surface of the star.the industrial design center logo can indeed be made by laser cuttingbut I have chosen to 3D-print the mold because it will last longer because its made out of ABS
I have exams at the moment but if you have a little patience, I would put an electric scheme online ;)
thanks ! ;)
thanks ! and nice just build one and after its ready send me some pictures ;)
dankje febe !
Cool ! Our assignment was to melt PMMA (acrylic) in a fast way so if it was for us a 250 watt lamp would be too little ;)
I think you mean where can you get a ceramic hob element?This is a link where you can buy it ;)http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/ceramic-hob-elementMeanwhile, I'm working on larger versions of the thermoformer (500 x 600mm and 1000 x 1200mm) in those versions, I use quartz lamps. It is as good as a ceramic hob element.The cheapest way to have these lamps is to remove the from patio heaters. If you buy the lamps separately it will cost 90 euros a piece. If you have any other questions feel free to askIf you've made it and let me know and if you would then send me some pictures of it
