I'm sure, tutorial on how to make the mold would be helpful.

How bad did your house smell afterwards?

okp wrote:really cool ! I was about to do this and make a DIY vacuum forming molder with a heat gun (I don't want to put ABS in my oven !) but I went the epoxy/fiber way.
great work and thanks for sharing. Hopefully oneday I will move from my floor in Paris and have a dedicated area to do DIY ... first purchase will be a DIY CNC !

I tried it and had ABS pizza afterwards... then spent 3+ hours cleaning it out so it didn't stink or taste like ABS plastic. NEVER AGAIN!
There are other methods for warming up ABS sheets which you can check on YouTube.

I once built a really cheap vacuum forming setup.
For heating: A box built out of 15cm thick building isolation foam with a hole in it for a hairdryer.
For Vacuumforming: A box built out of MDF with holes in it with a hole for a shop vac.
Results werent perfect, but it worked.
