View Full Version : Material to make 3d surfaces
12-26-2006, 05:47 AM
I am looking for a material which would look like perspex sheet but could be shaped into curved surfaces e.g. like the petals of a flower. It would need to be pliable for working but then set so that it would be solid at room temperature.
This might be a thermosetting plastic, but would have to be usable in a home environment.
Has anyone got any ideas or can give me a list of suppliers ?

Welcome to the Forum,
I have also been looking for something like you describe in your post.
Check out this thread from this past summer:
At the end, I posted a link to a pretty comprehensive list of plastics suppliers that I found.
Good luck, and please share any progress with us!

here is a material that is a thermoplastic sheet that will soften in hot water. It can be shaped while hot, then will become a rigid plastic again at room temperature. Hope this helps.
