Please note THIS IS NOT A CLEAR CANOPY – it is a tool or ‘Buck’ to make a canopy.
Designed to sit flat on a vacuum forming bed. Print with 5 Layer wall and zero infil.
Cut a large hole in the base, and remove the infill matrix.
Fill completely with plaster of paris. 60g of water to 100g Plaster. Most canopy tools take about 4-500g of plaster. Allow several days to dry – left with the belly up.
Once set, sand the 3d printed surface smooth using finer and finer grades of Wet n Dry paper – use Automotive filler primer aerosol to help get a good surface.
Polish with a rubbing compound such as T-Cut, then buff with a cloth and water to get a polished finish.
Please note that this mould tool has undercut, so will need careful releasing. Using a thinner canopy plastic (<.5mm) and perhaps cutting the canopy plastic where it will be trimmed away anyway will help.
