Tardis Console Answered

I'm wanting to bend a piece of acrylic into a cylinder. About 2' dia and 4' high. Any suggestions?

It will be heavy, take care :-)


How thick is your piece of acrylic? I guess you don't have an oven big enough or a set of steam rollers to pass it through. You should look up the melting temperature of acrylic and see if you can use a heat gun to heat up a strip and try to bend it a little at a time. Reheat and continue to get the radius desired. You may want to bend that around a heated pipe that would also work as a form. Peruse the tardisbuilders.com forums if you haven't already to get some tips on how to construct your console. Good luck.
