With the FormBox, you can start mass producing as many of an awesome design as you want!
First, you'll need a shape. You can find a shape you like, sculpt a form, or 3D print the perfect shape.
Next, you'll vacuum form a sheet of thin plastic (PETG or polystyrene) over that shape using the FormBox, leaving you with a plastic mold of the shape; a three-dimensional profile that can be used in countless ways. The clear PETG sheets are great for multi-use molds for a variety of materials. Polystyrene sheets help create lasting objects that can enhance your designs.
Now you're ready to start using your mold!
Fill your newly created design with concrete, plaster, resin, soap, ice or chocolate to create as many of that shape as you want! Once you have a physical object, you can change the design without sending anything to a factory or a third party for revisions - all the power of creating is in your hands.
So whether you're a small business owner, an Etsy shop creator, or just want a versatile tool for your new ideas, the Mayku FormBox can help make your designs a reality without having to outsource vacuum forming to another company. Save time and money with the FormBox.
