Bring your ideas to life with the new FormBox from Mayku.
The Makyu FormBox is an exciting production tool for designers, hobbyists and businesses alike. Using a special adaptor, you can use any vacuum cleaner to vacuum form thermoplastic over moulds. Manufacture prototypes in seconds and use your FormBox as a versatile partner in your production line.
How does it work? Insert a thermoplastic sheet into the FormBox and make a mould of something you’d like to create. Place the mould onto on the FormBox bed and then switch on the heater, let the material warm up, and pull the heated material over the mould. Then, switch on the vacuum to make a 3D form. Simple.
The process is as easy as 1-2-3. Best of all, it’s reliable. It delivers consistent results, allowing you to manufacture several prototypes in minutes.
Materials and uses
For forming, the FormBox is compatible with PET-G, HIPS, ABS, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene and acrylic PMMA, but we recommend using the Mayku Form Sheets and Cast Sheets. For casting, you can use any material in liquid or powdered form, including concrete, plaster silicone, chocolate and jelly.
What People Say
“What looks great about the FormBox is how dead simple it makes this process. There's no "scanning" or software or digital model manipulation”
– Eric Limer, Popular Mechanics
“It’s an interesting alternative to 3D modeling if you don’t have the patience to wait for traditional printing.”
– Natt Garun, TNW
“FormBox turns your home or workspace table into a mini factory.”
– Jenner Deal, Business Insider
“The speed and flexibility turns it into more of a factory than a printer, and opens the door to projects that just aren't practical otherwise.”
– Jon Fingas, Engadget
