Here are some great videos from popular YouTuber Rick Osgood about of his Proto-Form that he built for his local makerspace in Eugene.

Here’s an excerpt from an email he sent:

I just wanted to let you know that after two years of on and off work on this thing, we finally finished it this month. I couldn’t believe how well it worked right off the bat. I just wanted to thank you again and let you know that I think your plans were fantastic. They were very comprehensive and I felt they were easy to follow once I read through them all and really got to understand the flow between documents. I learned a lot along the way and I had a great time building it.

His first video is a fantastic example of the industrial grade “pulling” power of the Proto-Form!

This video shows how vacuum forming can add aesthetics and save time. The vacuum forming starts at about two and a half minutes in.
