A few weeks ago I posted about a prototyping material called Shape Lock or Polymorph. I purchased a pound of material from McMaster Carr because they had the best price. Package came with directions and the material was called Jett Basic.

Here is what I learned:

  • Everything is always easier to do on YouTube!
  • The material is paintable. I tried it with just Krylon, no primer and it sticks very well.
  • It is not sandable, it just melts.
  • It is reusable, just re-heat.
  • Use a teflon electric fry pan. I bought a Hot Pot (see below) and it sticks terribly. I may have had it too hot so use a thermometer to get the heat right.
  • Be careful you don’t burn your fingers
  • The temp to melt is should be 160 deg F
  • Making intricate shapes with your fingers is hard
