I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions, but I’m already telling myself that one of the things I want to break down and learn in 2023 is vacuum forming.
In this 2-part video on Prop Monkey Studio, he shows how you can even vacuum form EVA foam. Who knew?
I love the basic former he made from a shop heating unit, some particle board, aluminum foil, and an old vacuum cleaner.
And the two layer forming is to die for!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
