Thermoforming trouble

Postby SarahV » Mon Jun 18, 2018 9:04 pm

We had a 3D printer company print several of the phoenix designs for us to use for a service project with Girl Scouts. The company that printed them uses additive manufacturing printers (printed using powder). The pieces we got are plastic, but I'm not sure exactly what type of plastic. When we try to thermoform the gauntlet, we're running into problems. We can't seem to get it to want to bend enough and hold the shape to be able to use it. Do we need to have this one piece reprinted using something else, or is there another way other than using the boiling water to get it to bend?
