If you are interested in vacuforming your props instead of slush casting them check out this great tutorial brought to you by tk560 from the 501st
yes, ive seen this before, very nice! im thinking about building one. they used this to mass produce stormtroopers for star wars
thats how i made my stormtrooper armor
hey, i was wondering. would this work with visors? im wanting to make a mark 6 visor with the vacuum form method.
That's a great design, but has a lot of cons because of the "side-to-side" design. The best, and the one that will give you more accuracy when vacumforming, design is the "top-to-bottom" design. At least that's what I've read, and in makes sense. BTW, if I'm not wrong the Pro's machines are "top-to-bottom" desing.
hm, im actually really debating this. i really want to try vacuum forming visors, but im skeptical on what it could do to the reflective tint, if it even does anything to it.
has anyone ever had experience in that field? or am i gonna have to take a chance?
its according to the tint..... but yes you can turn this design into a top to bottom if you wanted
Thanks Darknemisis! I was looking for something like this. It has a very detailed parts list, which helps alot. Thanks again.
it never occured to me that you could have the polymer on a hynged pannel that would flip over, though that is a little bit to hardcore for what i might use a vac former for, it is definately useful and should be passed around. good ol 501st
Thanks.... ive known this guy for some time now and he makes killer props with this vac former
