How are acrylic pieces made?

  1. This may be a stupid question, but I just got to thinking...how are things (bongs, grinders, ect.) made out of plastic? Like, can you just buy bulk acrylic and mold it somehow like glass blowing? I don't see how that would work.:confused:
     
  2. i assume the body is made as 2 pieces in molds then stuck together.
     
  3. Don't waste your time, learn how glass is blown and all the techniques that go into all the heady work n shit. You will appreciate the glass and art 100000x more I promise. After degenerate art ( a glass blowing documentary) It made me that much happier to be a collector.
     
  4. Might be done with injection molding.

  5. i used to work with acrylics... it doesn't take much skill...
    if given the right materials you could probably build one with makeshift equipment in 5 minutes.. given a few trial and error runs to find the working temperatures
