    3FFBB593-CEFE-465E-A31C-F57B7E8BE4CF.png Another fun project. We received a vacuum former and I have a love for chocolate. I created a “cookie” with a circuit board brain & the college engineering club.

    Vacuum pulled nicely, need to melt some chocolate unfortunately with my sweet tooth, it doesn’t last long enough to cast.

    Cool project! Did you build the vacuum sealer yourself too? Any pictures of finished chocolate?

      The vacuum former was bought. I’ll take a pic tomorrow. I’ve got DIY ones but this works much better. Haven’t made chocolate yet. Just finished making about a dozen molds. I’ll have chocolate soon.

      Sorry I haven’t taken pictures of our units. Busy & sick. our larger unit is a formech. It works great, highly recommend... at least for the casual thermalformer user! The DIY units are standard MDF construction with shop-vac. DIY works just fine but formech is consistent.
