To mold something with the FormBox you need to make sure to put draft angles of at least 3 degrees on each vertical side. You also need to avoid undercuts, so the part doesn’t get stuck in the mold.

We’ve designed an adaptor that enables the FormBox to work with any vacuum cleaner.

The size of the FormBox bed is 200mm x 200mm. The maximum width and length we’ve tried to mold is 150mm x 150mm. To avoid tearing the plastic, we suggest not vacuum forming anything taller than it is wide.

We are shipping FormBoxes worldwide but please be aware that you may be responsible for import duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region.

We’ve had a lot of fun casting objects in molds made with the FormBox.

Here are some materials we’ve been using:

– Resin

– Ice

– Foam

– Jello

– Chocolate

– Plaster

– Concrete

– Silicone

This list is by no means exhaustive. If you’ve got questions about a particular casting material, get in touch at hello@mayku.me and we’ll help you out.

Every FormBox will arrive with enough material to get making straight out of the box. However, if you run out (because you’ve made loads of cool stuff) we’re launching an online store where you can order a whole selection of different materials.
You’ll also be able to order materials from third party suppliers -whether that’s online or your local hobby store.

The FormBox works well with thermoplastics – plastics that go soft when warm. Here are the technical terms:

– Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene ABS (the stuff Lego is made from)

– Polystyrene PS (found in product packaging)

– Polycarbonate PC (found in drinks bottles)

– Polypropylene PP (buckets, spades, chairs, everything!)

– Polyethylene (sheet and foamed sheet)

– PE (insulating cases, bottles) – Polyvinyl Chloride PVC (straws, plastic pipes)

– PETg (food safe molds)

– HIPS (disposable cups)

– Acrylic PMMA (light-up signs)

We’ve tested the machine with materials between 0.1 and 1mm in thickness and they work very well. We’ll be testing more in the coming months and publishing the results.

We’ve successfully tested placing multiple objects on the bed. The number of objects you can fit really depends on the height, width and shape of the objects you’re trying to mold.

Due to overwhelming demand, Mayku is sold out through spring 2018. We are now taking reservations for a July 2018 delivery.
