Vacuum Forming Hexaflex

How to vacuum form Hexaflex. (Link)

Not really sure what kind of plastic it is but it sure helped me to gain an idea of technique. The whole experiment is definitely a major success as it shows the potential for a fast, economic and high quality method of manufacture. There is a host of applications just waiting to be discovered to be added to the already recognised uses for this patented geometric matrix. Pls check out my blog:
