Polycaprolactone

just wanted to share this with everyone. I just stumbled upon this product when i was trying to figure out how i was going to make my vacuum for my project. I'm not sure how long this has been out on the market but it looks awsome for prototyping it's called "Polycaprolactone" or shapelock, or friendly plastic, or polymorph etc.......check out the videos

Its a 2lb bag 0r 1kg for $40.00 in the shop. Not a bad price:)

They make temporary oral prosthetics out of that stuff. I had one. It's super durable as long as it stays cool.

Just wanted to share... I bought some of this today. Me and the missus had a play around, and it's really easy to work with. Hot water, cold water and (optionally) a heat gun (I use the heat gun attachment on my gas soldering iron) is all you need. A little bit of practice and I can see great uses for this!

Or, failing that, it's just really, really good fun:D

Hey @Antron007 thanks for letting us know, makes me wish we still had Radio Shacks up here in Canada. Polymorph/Shapelock/Caprolactone is definitely some useful stuff.
