Details

We'll use our new vacuum former we built to create molds for chocolate. With a vacuum former we can "copy" almost any solid object like a wrench or a chess piece or a wooden heart you cut out of wood or 3D print. Your imagination is the limit (as well as if the shape has too many overhangs where the plastic won't come off well.)

We'll use sous vide machines to melt the chocolate evenly then pour them into our molds. We'll experiment to figure out the right temperature and times and how best to pull plastic with our vacuum former!

Here's more information about our vacuum former machine:
