Once I had the mold ready I attempted using the vacuum form to make it. Since I did not have a full-sized piece of material to work with I tried to make due with a smaller sheet, but in the end I didn't get nearly enough suction for the vacuum to actually make a difference. It wasn't critical to the project, I just wanted to try it out. After the video, since the material was still hot I just pushed the mold up into the warm acrylic and it created the shape I needed.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
