 FABRICATION (FAB)
 
   
FAB105: Vacuum Forming SBU

Lots of parts can be made quickly and inexpensively with the use of a vacuum forming system.

In this Safety and Basic Use class, you will learn the parts of the vacuum forming machine and then make vacuum-formed parts. You will make a master (plug) tool from inexpensive materials like pine, foam, balsa or found objects; select plastic sheeting; and then use the created part as a "plug" to mold the final object from a heated plastic sheet with the assistance of atmospheric pressure.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!

FAB107: Silicone RTV Moldmaking and Casting Basics

Learn how to work with silicone RTV (room temperature vulcanization), make a small mold using a plastic cup, see how more advanced molds are made, and even cast your own part in urethane resin!

In this introductory class, you will learn to make a silicone RTV mold from a small part or pre-made plug. You will makea single-sided mold of a quarter or other small, simple part. You will also examine two-sided mold making, adding registration "buttons" and slicing the mold. You will then cast resin in an RTV mold, learning tips and tricks to mixing and pouring resin and other substances to create final pieces from a silicone RTV mold.

Designed for the beginner, this class shows how easy it is to build molds with silicone RTV.
