Please note THIS IS NOT A CLEAR CANOPY – it is a tool or ‘Buck’ to make a canopy.
The Tomcat canopy tool is designed to be printed in two pieces. (two .stl files are provided)
Designed to sit flat on a vacuum forming bed. Print with 3 Layer wall and 4% infill.
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.
