what instructions?
soft side first?

I still find the edges are cooler and less adaptive.
I put the soft side half way from the heating elements for 2.5 minutes and then I flip it for another 2.5 at the same distance. When I pull it down I use a dull knife to press the material against the model to make sure it is adapting tho it keeping the vacuum on for about 30sec.

Wtf? Since when I was there instructions for dual laminates? I've only done a few of them, but I must have wasted half of the box by the either under/over the heating them. I just got my first dual laminate in 2-3 years and it came out perfect for the first time ever thanks to this thread. I heated the soft side first and poked at itself to determine readiness. Once I felt it was ready I flipped it over and poked the hard side for readiness and sucked it down. No more burnt out yellow look that I can sell as a premium golden dual laminate. 😜
