    Hi all found a local supplier who sells black PETG, anyone got any feedback on it with regards to vaccuforming?

    2mm of PETG should form just fine

    Sweet thanks at $3 a metre & walking distance makes it a bargain (no clear PETG or HIPS avail. though for visors dammit though)

    What are you using it for? Keep in mind its a major PITA to glue... Though yeah, it should give you better detail then styrene

    Vac forming helmets in one piece I hope to try so little gluing if any required. Haven't found any local styrene suppliers near me yet.
