Hi csipmson.
Thanks a lot, it´s been really helpfull althought would be more helpfull if you could tell me what´s the material you use in the photo, ( i´m thinking too, that should´t it be heating to allow the plastic with wacuum be adaptet to mould, cause any plastic material could not be deformed with out heat), would appreciate any explanation about the vacuum machine and materials used to do canopys
Please make me know, Paco

I use PETG for my vaccuum formed parts. It is available from http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/cat...ookie%5Ftest=1 and is called "Vivak" on their site. They have a variety of thicknesses and they do allow single sheet orders (about 2'x4'). The price is reasonable and the service is great.
