3D Printed Vacuum Forming Tooling

Vacuum forming (also know as thermoforming) is where a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mold, and forced against the mold by a vacuum. This process can be used to form plastic into permanent objects such as:

With the advent of 3D printing it has become possible to produce low cost tooling for the vacuum forming process quickly, with extremely high quality, and with robust materials that can last for thousands of cycles. Some of the 3D printing processes that lend themselves to producing vacuum forming tooling are:
